In the GCC web pages, and subject to things not in CVS such as that
redirect I mentioned, yes.

There are all those mirror sites listed who haven't yet followed your
request to change the directory name from egcs to gcc (presuming that
mirrors.html is up to date and accurately reflects the canonical directory
name on each mirror site (it isn't and doesn't - patch following to update
the sites)).

I don't understand search.html enough to tell whether the egcs references
there need to stay.

There are many egcs references in the libstdc++-v3 source / web pages.

There are many egcs references in the Fortran manual, at least some of
which refer to EGCS as something current rather than historical, but
someone familiar with the Fortran front end would need to deal with those.
