After 6 hours of downloading (thanks to my poor dialup connection and the large frontends for Ada and Java), finally built GCC-4.0.1 on my machine.
As a first test, tried the compiler on the FLTK sources. The build was a breeze and was over within 10 seconds. As advertized, with -O0, the compiler simply blitzed through the sources.

In the next few days, I plan to build GNUstep (to check Objective-C), MLT, MLT++ and ShotCut. I'm particularly interested in the ELF symbol visibility options and size of the resulting binaries.
