So does (synopsys) nanosim, which I've witnessed seg-fault on gcc.  :S

Hspice is using gcc as well.

I don't mind compiling models as long as it works in every situation.
And there are only two ways of achieving this: preparing packets for
each (Linux) distribution version&architecture, or shipping a bundle
of gnucap, gcc and other devel tools. I don't want to see queue daemon
halting my tasks only because it decided to run them on a host with
gcc installed in another directory.
