Thanks.  Actually, it looks fine, but

AAARG!  How is anyone (being a humble configure script) supposed to
pick `3.1.1<SPACE>20020606' to be the version string from that?  I
could live with something like

    gcc (GNU CC) 3.1.1-20020606-debian-prerelease

or even

    gcc (GNU CC) 3.1.1-20020606 (Debian prerelease)

I think maybe someone should file a bug to the Debian gcc package.
LilyPond will not be the only package to verify the version of the


xs3 $ gcc --version
peder $ gcc --version
$ bison --version
bison (GNU Bison) 1.35
$ flex --version
flex version 2.5.4
$ guile --version
Guile 1.5.6
