Ok, understood.   Still, the mind boggles at the possibility that  
software (fink) that's smart enough to look at its internal state,

this mailing list archive) that getting out of this hole on a PowerPC  
Mac requires a version of XCode (version 2.5, which modern enough for  
a good gcc-4.0, but not the XCode 3 that requires Intel) that is not  
easily found on apple's website:
