Subject: What's "advantage of gcc-specific features"?
Hi, there,

I'm reading the INSTALL file and want to know more about the first 
prerequisite. :-)  It says,

* The GNU C compiler gcc is recommended, as the bytecode
  interpreter takes advantage of gcc-specific features to enhance

What does the "advantage of gcc-specific features" really mean? Who knows?

Also I want to know if someone knows if there's anything "tricky" on 
Solaris platform for using OCaml?
