This patch does it, but I don't know if it's a clean solution -- the
two BEntry variables that use absolute paths.
Another concern is that Axel disabled "GCC 2" displaying in r25994,
which is after the introduction of GCC Hybrids in r25536.
Would this be acceptable and OK to commit?

I wouldn't show anything if it's the default version, anything that differs should include the extra information. I guess GCC2 hybrid is what we ship so that one shouldn't have that line IMO.

Since a lot of users will not know that the default build is a GCC2/4 hybrids, it would be beneficial to explicitly display the build type.

Cheers,
