When you get a patch for approval for the trunk that was designed for
a branch, you should reregtest the patch on the trunk to make it does
not break anything else. Also if you use --disable-bootstrap, get
used to using "make bootstrap" (the old style of bootstrapping the
compiler). :) It might be best if you have scripts which do the
building/testing for you and then you just have to compare the
testresults. contrib/gcc_build is already a good script for that
fact. And then you don't have to get used to using
--disable-bootstrap on a specific branch as it is already there.
Anyways Geoff Keating fixed this issue already.
