If anything, FreeBSD developers/users could be criticized for not
getting their act together and taking better care of FreeBSD support
in GCC.

What I find comparing the snapshot from two days ago
with my currently testing patch with stdint.h support on FreeBSD is
that we go from

  # of expected passes		30253
  # of unexpected failures	19
  # of expected failures	20
  # of unsupported tests	242


  # of expected passes		30303
  # of unexpected failures	1
  # of expected failures	20
  # of unsupported tests	250

as far as Fortran is concerned.  My tests are still running, but expect
to see a working patch being submitted in a few hours. :-)
