Well, then I've been crazy for 4-1/2 years!  And that makes coke  
crazy too!

When I started in Parrot, I was having trouble getting 'make' to  
complete.  Coke showed me how he built Parrot on Darwin (at least at  
that time):

/usr/local/bin/perl --cc="$CC" --link="$CX" --ld="$CX"

... and I've followed that religiously ever since, for better or  
worse.  In other words, I've never attempted an "all-gcc" build.

So what was different about this latest report was that I attempted g+ 
+ in all 3 slots, not just the last two.
