humber:~ williamg$ sudo port search gcc42
gcc42                          lang/gcc42     4.2.0        The 
GNU compiler collection, prerelease BETA

Now that GCC 4.2.0 has been officially released, I'm hoping that 
it will soon be available through macports, replacing the 
prerelease beta.

I installed the macports gcc42 package, but I can't determine 
whether this has already happened or not:

humber:~ williamg$ gcc-mp-4.2 --version

- It just says "4.2.0". Is the current macports version actually 
4.2.0 final, or is the description correct, and it's still a 
prerelease beta?
