This is what I THOUGHT; Mandrake 8 has seperate packages for
egcs-1.1.2 and gcc-2.96, and this /usr/bin/kgcc is owned by egcs.
Note, the reason I discovered that octave/oct.h worked is because kgcc
is in the 'mkoctfile' command on my distro.

Oh well, beats me what's going on...just thought maybe someone else
would be banging their head on the same problem and a google search
could pop this up.  

I should probably switch back to RedHat; Mandrake does a good job on
things, but I don't trust any distribution that doesnt' include
'telnet' by default. :(
