Convert binary wrapper to a symlink wrapper.v2.0
Before the change: /usr/bin/gcc and friends were a copy of /usr/$(libexecdir)/misc/gcc-config After the change: /usr/bin/gcc is a symlink to a real compiler binary. Examples: /usr/${CTARGET}/gcc-bin/${GCC_VER}/gcc (native) /usr/${CHOST}/${CTARGET}/gcc-bin/${GCC_VER}/gcc (cross) gcc-config is a binary wrapper that does (or did) a few things: - [removed in 2011] injects additional CFLAGS_${ABI} Removed in commit 7ac40f3eb8434961f70485247d883f5b3009dcf2 "Stop auto appending CFLAGS_<abi> from the env." - traverses PATH for real compiler binary and reexecutes it. - reads /etc/env.d/05gcc-${CTARGET} as a fallback if PATH is empty. Today binary wrapper does only PATH resolution and re-execution. This change has a few minor benefits: - PATH will not contain explicit /usr/${CHOST}/${CTARGET}/gcc-bin/${GCC_VER} entry. This will make PATH shorter for those who have mavy cross-compilers installed. - compiler switch will not require sourcing '. /etc/profile' as changes are applied as soon an symlink is switched. - ccache will see gcc binary changes directly and react accordingly. Previously in default configuration ccache cache depended on state of /usr/$(libexecdir)/misc/gcc-config See bug #640958 where ccache did not notice USE=-pie -> USE=pie switch. - Reasoning about PATH ordering is straightforward: all available binaries (as symlinks) are in /usr/bin. See bug #255695 where PATH ordering changed and bug #626606 where people get confused on what is in /usr/bin/gcc binary.
