And the cvs tag can and has in the past been slid forward or 
backwards when unforseen problems occur.

If you want to use "g++ -pedantic", do the following

cd $HOME
mkdir gcc
cd gcc
cvs -qz9 -d update\
-r tree-ssa-20020619-branch -PAd gcc
cd ..
mkdir obj
cd obj
../gcc/configure --enable-languages=c,c++ --prefix=$HOME
gmake bootstrap
gmake install

troutmask:sgk[205] $HOME/bin/g++ -static -pedantic -o a
troutmask:sgk[206] a
hello world
troutmask:sgk[207] cat
#include <iostream>
int main(void) {
   std::cout << "hello world\n";
   return 0;
