The information supplied with the GPC tarball is outdated, so I get
into this trouble once. This is more or less what you have to do:

cd /usr/src
tar xvfz gcc-2.95.2.tar.gz
tar xvfz gpc-19991030.tar.gz
mv gpc/p gcc-2.95.2/gcc/
mkdir gcc-2.95.2/gpc
cd !$

And this last command ask you for a patch to apply; just hit enter and
that should work. Then:

make && make install

Have fun!!
