Wrong again.  The problems with access() and what one should do
instead of using access(), have been hashed out some 15 years since.
These include what one should do in order to be properly portable,
which includes *not* simply assuming that group IDs work in only one
way.  I repeat my recommendation to read Bugtraq.  der Mouse, Jeremy
Epstein, and others have already covered this ground, *years ago*.

*You* are the one *with* the problem.  You are the appropriate person
to talk to the gcc maintainers about *your* problem with gcc.
