I know this was true at one time -- egcs couldn't read 2.7 spec files,
or something like that. (I remember at the time thinking "so much for
the great and glorious '-V' theory".)

But I think it's since been fixed:

$ gcc -v
Reading specs from /usr/lib/gcc-lib/i386-linux/2.95.2/specs
gcc version 2.95.2 20000220 (Debian GNU/Linux)
$ gcc -V2.7.2.3 -v
Reading specs from /usr/lib/gcc-lib/i386-linux/
gcc driver version 2.95.2 20000220 (Debian GNU/Linux) executing gcc version

Is there more subtle breakage?
