I guess it should flag this in the port file then, as per Ryan's 
suggestion in the next mail in this thread (!)

Well, I'm attempting to build the gcc42 port on 10.3.9, and that 
build fails because of an unrecognised argument to libtool (see 
other thread) - so I thought I'd attempt to build odcctools 
port, in the expectation that it contains a later version of 
libtool, which would allow the gcc42 port to build!

(In fact, all these efforts stem from the fact that I've not yet 
succeeded in building a gcc 4.2.0 cross-compiler with 
host=i386-apple-darwin8, target=powerpc-apple-darwin7 ..... if 
I could manage that then I would do all my building on the 
10.4.10 intel machine!)

So, if there's a way to tweak gcc42's build so that it is able 
to operate with XCode 1.5's cctools, then that would be a good 
solution to get gcc42 up and running native on the 10.3.9 
machine for now. I certainly wouldn't advocate resurrecting 
older versions of odcctools just for this use case!

The final underlying reason for all this is to experiment with 
the state of OpenMP support in GCC 4.2.0, in the hope that I 
can enable it for a project on both PowerPC and Intel macs!
