Ugh, all my machines use 3.80

Debian 3.1, Fedora 5, MacOSX Tiger

BUT I've been conservative with my upgrades, leading to package  
databases that are no longer actively maintained.  Debian 4.0 is the  
current stable, and it's at make 3.81-2.  Fedora 7 also uses 3.81.

So if Apple would just update the Dev Tools, we wouldn't need to  
install our own, but that's (I'm guessing) waiting for the new OS  

I guess I should find some time for upgrades.
