 Replying to [ticket:10014 kallisti5]:
 > setgcc was a great way to adjust your compiler in the non-PM branches.

 Well, it was a rather crude way to adjust the compiler, it has never been
 great, really: it changed on disk structures to switch the compiler, which
 means that you couldn't use setgcc in one shell while already having a
 build running in another.

 On PM-Haiku, you should be able to activate a specific compiler by adding
 its path to the 'PATH' environment variable. This could be done by a
 script named 'setgcc', of course ... patches welcome ;-)

 > gcc_x86 - gcc 4
 > gcc4h-----
 > gcc - gcc 4
 > gcc_x86_gcc2 - gcc 2

 Hm, what's add about that? The primary compiler uses the short name and
 any secondary compiler is suffixed by its target Haiku architecture.
 What other naming scheme do you suggest?
