Yes, I see that.  I'm still dubious about it as a long-term strategy,
particularly the stuff with merging GCC's private headers into
/usr/include.  If you recall, there was discussion a couple months ago
about splitting that into three categories?

Also, from an abstract point of view I don't see any gain from
rearranging GCC's installation like that, so I'm wondering why
Net/OpenBSD see it as a desirable thing to do.
