Indeed it seems that part of the GCC project goals is to make it as
difficult as possible for external projects to use its internals. But
since the "damage is already done", might as well make the best of it
and check out ORC/Open64 (utilizing GCC 2.96 front-end) and GCC2C from
Sun (utilizing GCC 3.0.4, 3.1, 3.2). Both require additional amount
of portability work.
