Ok, thanks Adrien for the explanation.  I know about these but was drawing a 
total blank because too tired to think today.  Feeling Wiped out and going to 
take a nap.

True for gcc2 Haiku but not for gcc4 Haiku.  Since porting person compiled 
libraries on gcc4 Haiku they expect the end user to install to gcc4 system. 
 Either way this will cause an issue for gcc2 or gcc4 Haiku depending how the 
libs are packaged.  I now see your point.  Libraries should always be packaged 
for official gcc2 Haiku no matter if compiled on gcc4 Haiku.  Many people think 
that if you use gcc4 programs that you are better off with gcc4 Haiku to have 
less issues.

A Haiku compatible logo is great idea to ensure gcc4 libraries/programs are 
packaged for and working on official gcc2 Haiku.

Right you are!

I added in extra blank lines since Freelists? likes to strip them from any 
posts coming from Hotmail email.  I am too used to Hotmail to switch. =(
