ohhhhhhh ok, I got it now. THANKS!, at least a clean sharp answer.

Well now that I have, no way to modify it for mint running
perfect? that's at the compilation time that gcc has been modified for
TOS?, if Yes I guess I will have to downgrade.

Well DO WE HAVE SHARED LIBS? that might be a reason why we don't need
to use /usr/local/lib  These shuold only contain the extra files for
some application, such as irc, lynx etc.

:) My $PATH is pretty much complete :)

oh ok. got it. btw WHY .olb? no apparent reason for changing .a into
.olb, these are the same lib, and the .olb or .a, well it doesn't make
it any longer or shorter, I mean a tos user with only 8+3 can
perfectly use libxxx.a, no? am I missing something?

>it's a TOS versus MiNT - see above
Ok got it :) thanks for clarifying this, BTW just by curiosity, How
many SINGLETOS users are really into GCC?

Also, are the magic users able to use gcc (TOS version)?
OR can they also use the gcc(MINT) if they use the vfat partition?
What's the difference between TOS and mint version anyway except the
longfilename if EVER used?
