Got this to install successfully by using "ln -s" instead of the "file link -symbolic". On instigation of a post.

#2011-07-16 JvO
pre-patch {
#    file link -symbolic ${worksrcpath}/gcc-${version_gcc} ../gcc-${version_gcc} 
    ln -s ../gcc-${version_gcc} ${worksrcpath}/gcc-${version_gcc}

Committed in r80886. Thanks.

You don't have to shell out for this, as we have a Tcl procedure ln that behaves very similarly to ln(1), including the ability to create links pointing to files that don't exist (yet).

I replaced system with ln procedure in r80923. Thanks.
