General Development The LLVM Project recently released a new version of their compiler, optimizer and code generators. LLVM includes a drop-in GCC-compatible C/C++ and ObjC compiler, mature optimization technology (including cross file/whole program optimization), and a highly optimizing code generator. For people who enjoy hacking on compilers and runtimes, LLVM provides libraries for implementing custom optimizers and code generators including JIT compiler support. This release is the first to provide beta GCC 4.2 compatibility as well as the new "clang" C/ObjC front-end, which provides capabilities to build source-to-source translators and many other tools.

Talk to Sun, Apple and many other vendors who have tried to get patches merged which fix bone head stupid bugs - GCC maintainers refuse to merge it.

Can you provide an example of this happening?

Look through Sun and Apple mailing lists.

Those are rather huge, and I think the burden of proof here rests with you. Can you really not point to an instance of it yourself?

If you already find an example, why don't just post the links?

Read through the comments on the Undeadly.org story regarding integrating PCC into OpenBSD. There are a handful of very long posts on there that go into lots of detail on patches that people have made that have been ignored. Patches that fix issues and long-standing bugs in GCC, patches that fix regressions. And patches that have been summarily ignored.

I'd post the link to the story, but for some reason, we can't access undeadly.org from work (most likely the provincial network folks are blocking it).
