 installing optional package with libraries only installs them for the
 'main' gcc. For example, on a gcc2 hybrid you don't get the gcc4 version
 of the lib.

 With the current runtime loader behaviour, this means when running a gcc4
 app, the gcc2 lib could be loaded.

 Even worse, running a gcc2 app on a gcc4h install in this case leads to
 load of the lib, which itself depends on libsupc++. Loading this in a gcc2
 image causes a lot of weird bugs in unrelated places.

 I think this could be solved by renaming the gcc4 libs, for example using
 "4so" as a suffix instead of just so. This would help avoiding mixups, and
 allow to put the libs in the same directory. As a result, the optional
 packages for gcc4 can be installed in a gcc2 hybrid without creating

 On the other hand :
  * The package manager may solve that in a better way ? (installing the
 libs at the right place somehow ?)
  * There is some work needed on build of packages, for example sdl-config,
 allegro-config and other pkg-config files should look to setgcc setting
 and use the right lib path according to that.
