When we get the bsd-port changes folded into hsx, these ugly patches will go away.

is gcc 4.0 still required.
When I setup my build system for mlvm and bsd-port I did the following to use gcc 4.0:
# Create the ALT_COMPILER_PATH directory and compiler links:
# In the sources/ dir create the ALT_COMPILER_PATH dir and
# the following symbolic links to the gcc 4.0 compilers:
# cd sources
# mkdir ALT_COMPILER_PATH
# cd ALT_COMPILER_PATH
# ln -s /usr/bin .SOURCE
# ln -s .SOURCE/g++-4.0 g++
# ln -s .SOURCE/gcc-4.0 gcc
