more than gcc.. i think it's about autoshit. but well..if you are not
distributing gcc in the base distro you dont need awk. you should split
the compilation environment to the deployment one with a toolchain
stage. then you can make different "tapes" to load the developer
environment (with gcc, ...), X11 one, ...
