The old update script did it wrong sometimes. When the sources 
were parallel, like /usr/local/src/gcc and /ust/local/src/gdc , 
the script pacthed gcc to make gdc, but failed with the patches 
to makefiles for the library. So gdc was built  but the library 
did not compile at all. This error was very hard to notice. The 
new script that came a week ago works, the only thig was that it 
did not have the executable bit set by default.
