I think we're in "violent agreement".  The issue I'm raising is under 
MacOS X where they already have Gnu tools as standard, but I need a 
non'standard patch to as in order for g77 to work.  The posted 
instructions on the darwin-development list have me replacing the 
standard as with one that might not work for other things instead of 
putting it someplace more specific to g77.
