One new problem with gcc4 and ports is that gcc reports the architecture as haiku instead of beos. It's also a bit confusing as gcc2 is still beos, so when doing gcc4 builds configure will almost always fallback to the default arch instead of the beos alternative.
This does sound confusing, I'd vote for switching to reporting the same architecture for both compilers. I'd probably favour -haiku and documenting that this has changed (IIRC, we're not actually concerned with exact source compatibility with BeOS anyway (header layout etc)?)
