OK, I'm glad to hear that.

Yes, we agree.  We actually have already fixed this, but it missed the
cutoff for the CDs; it was easy to fix, but was unfortunately overlooked
until too late.  It will be one of the first updates we post.

We have customers who want the installation location configurable at
install time.  gcc seems to be the only package that has a problem with
this.  I think we're working on a better solution for the next release.
