    my view of the mess wasn't the fact RedHat used kgcc. i think that was a
    good move.

    i mean how in 2.2 the Makefile must search out for gcc, kgcc, gcc-2.95,
    gcc-2.91 etc. what is the cml2 parser going to do? search for my python2
    binary because my python1 binary is my "standard" python?
