	The current snapshots of octave ( a pd matlab 
clone ) require gcc-2.7x and libg++2.7.1 to compile. We only have 
gcc-2.6.x on FreeBSD-2.05 and 2.1.

	Thus i need to get gcc-2.7.2 and libg++2.7.1 running on my 2.05 
box so i can continue to test octave snaps.

	gcc 2.7.2 was not a problem :-). 

	libg++2.7.1 is :-(. It needs a new version of gas ( our's does not 
support the ".weak" context ). I 've got that handled now. :-)

	What has left me stumped is the error message mentioned in the 
subject line.

	Can anybody think of a reason why gcc-2.7.2 ( or more likely, ld 
) chokes on the stock crt0.o? The error message is :

"/usr/local/lib/crt0.o:improper format or file not recognized"
where /usr/local/lib/crt0.o is a link to /usr/lib/crt0.o

any guesses?
