Er, I've never tested whether gcc4 builds under BeOS. It may well be that I 
left out some patches necessary for BeOS. All I can say is that it runs 
fine under my SuSE Linux 9.2 installation (updated to gcc4 meanwhile). I 
suppose most other Linux distributions will work, too. Nathan checked 
something in for FreeBSD; not sure how far he got there. Axel reported 
problems under YellowDog Linux (PPC), so I wouldn't expect that one to work.

CU, Ingo
