That's too bad.  You must not have run into the various bugs with the
old approach.

I agree, that's a problem.

I personally always compile in Emacs.  Then I don't have to look for
the output, I just let C-x ` do it for me.  But I realize this doesn't
work for everybody.

I've planned for a while to speed up compilations when using gcc3, by
noticing this at configure time and subsequently avoiding the use of
depcomp.  As a side effect this should clean up the output a bit.  If
you're interested in this I can give you an outline of how to
implement it.  It shouldn't be that hard.
