There might also be PPC-specific problems with egcs and/or glibc versions
I have. I thought I had the problem narrowed down to only libstdc++, but I
recompiled everything a couple of days ago with egcs, using the *old*
libstdc++ and the problem reappeared. I'm going to look at this a little
more when I get coda-4.6.5.

I'm not really sure what the problem is anymore, I just know a procedure
to build coda that works.. I'm hoping someone else will try it on PPC (or
maybe on Intel with egcs) and figure this out.

Btw, has anyone built coda with egcs on Intel? (*bsd or linux?)
