I'll give it a try, but I won't have time for a few days.

For what it is worth, I did my own install and just installed using the real name into /usr/local/bin.

Then if I specify CC=ccub make, most Makefiles do the right thing.

One of the reasons is that this will wreak havok on programs that expect the normal cc, such as fink (and I assume darwinports).

The other thing one rapidly runs into is linking against libraries that are platform-specific. There is a lot of opportunity for pain, which is why fink (and I assume darwinports) made the decision not to do the universal binary thing.

Anyway, thanks for doing this.
