OK, gcc 4.2.4 works for me, too.

It looks like "$^V" is broken in miniperl, "$^C" does only return a 0A.

Where is "$^C" build exactly?

I did not run a bisect for a long time, do you have a "refresher"?

Not yet, but I might be able to setup something (in the connections to
the Internet could be limited to git).

:-) I have the same machine, but with VIO and 8GB memory.
