Successful Install of gcc-3.0.3 on powerpc-ibm-aix4.3.3.0

I have successfully built gcc-3.0.3 on AIX  Following the
system-specific installation notes for AIX, I first installed the
Gnu assembler from the binutils-2.11.2 distribution.  Here's the
installation data:

% /usr/local/src/gcc-3.0.3/config.guess
% gcc -v
Reading specs from /usr/local/lib/gcc-lib/powerpc-ibm-aix4.3.3.0/3.0.3/specs
Configured with: /usr/local/src/gcc-3.0.3/configure
Thread model: single
gcc version 3.0.3

I did the simplest build possible: configure; make bootstrap; make install.
Worked perfectly.  Afterwards, I checked the permissions on the shared
libraries (as per the note on GCC's exception handling implementation in
the system-specific installation notes for *-ibm-aix*).  The libgcc_s.a
was already set to 0751 (no read by others) as the note said it should be,
but libstdc++.a was not, so I changed it (chmod o-r libstdc++.a).  This is
the only post-build change I needed to make.

Congratulations to the GCC team!  This is an amazing piece of work!
