Thanks for all the quick answers. I'll be sure to keep you updated on all
my FreeBSD-related findings, it will be my main platform for development.

The solution offered on this mailing list also solved my `make
install` problem, thanks a lot. A single curiosity is that it install the
new compiler in [pptest]/lib/(etc.) and places a copy of the old one in
[pptest]/bin. Or is that the default behavior, allowing you to run both
the release and stable versions in parallel?
