The day gcc 3.0 was released, I checked the page (forgot the address) where
STL compliance was described.
Everything was _not_ ISO compliant. <valarray> , for example, was described
as "broken" and in fact examples of the Stroustrup book didn't compile and
did compile with SGI 's STL.
If you really need standard compliance, installation of SGI 's STL is really
easy, don't modify _anything_ to your current gcc installation. You just have
to tell gcc where to look for headers in the makefile. I strongly recommand
