Only presidents, editors, and people with tapeworms have the right to use the editorial ``we''.(Mark Twain)
This HOWTO is based very closely on Mitchum DSouza's GCC-FAQ; most of the information (not to mention a reasonable amount of the text) in it comes directly from that document. Instances of the first person pronoun in this HOWTO could refer to either of us; generally the ones that say ``I have not tested this; don't blame me if it toasts your hard disk/system/spouse'' apply to both of us.
Contributors to this document have included (in ASCII ordering by first name) Andrew Tefft, Axel Boldt, Bill Metzenthen, Bruce Evans, Bruno Haible, Daniel Barlow, Daniel Quinlan, David Engel, Dirk Hohndel, Eric Youngdale, Fergus Henderson, H.J. Lu, Jens Schweikhardt, Kai Petzke, Michael Meissner, Mitchum DSouza, Olaf Flebbe, Paul Gortmaker, Rik Faith, Steven S. Dick, Tuomas J Lukka, and of course Linus Torvalds, without whom the whole exercise would have been pointless, let alone impossible :-)
