1 Installing GCC

This document describes the generic installation procedure for GCC
as well as detailing some target specific installation instructions.
GCC includes several components that previously were separate
distributions with their own installation instructions. This document
supersedes all package specific installation instructions.
_Before_ starting the build/install procedure please check the
host/target specific installation notes Specific. We recommend you
browse the entire generic installation instructions before you proceed.
Lists of successful builds for released versions of GCC are
available at `http://gcc.gnu.org/buildstat.html'. These lists are
updated as new information becomes available.
The installation procedure itself is broken into five steps.
* Downloading the source
* Testing (optional)
* Final install
Please note that GCC does not support `make uninstall' and probably
won't do so in the near future as this would open a can of worms.
Instead, we suggest that you install GCC into a directory of its own
and simply remove that directory when you do not need that specific
version of GCC any longer, and, if shared libraries are installed there
as well, no more binaries exist that use them.
