I absolutely agree.  My impression is that the current situation is a
disagreement between (some of, at least) the GCC developers, and
someone who can commit to autoconf; but I think it would be a very
bad choice for the GNU project to work around itself.  If we can't
come to an agreement on the list, please ask the Steering Committee.
This is a textbook example of what they're for.

But first produce some data please. I only remember one case where the program was at fault and not gcc from the transition from 4.0 to 4.1 compiling all of SUSE Linux 10.1 (barring those we don't recognized of course).
