Great! Now we're getting somewhere. :)

Before we go updating everything to gcc44, let's make sure gcc44 works everywhere we need it to.

Do we have any thoughts on the ticket where gcc44 can't be built on Tiger Intel? Anybody else see that problem or is it only on my machine? Do we care about Tiger anymore?

What about this ticket where gcc44 can't be built on (some?) Leopard machines? Anybody else see this problem?
