It was the only way I could get it working the past year. I didn't have
to before that but I don't know when the change ocured. I normally don't
change things unless there is a real need. Once I removed the -ldb per
Michael's instructions I no longer had to remove the *.so files.

Haven't bothered. The last time I tried to build gcc it blew chunks.
native cc has worked just fine for me.
