* gcc: contains gcc (c-compiler + gcc-driver) and newlib.
* c++: packages are add-on packages to "gcc"-packages, containing cgcc's
c++-compiler (g++) + corresponding libs.

The "gcc" package must be installed before you can install the
c++-package.

And yes, the powerpc packages are monsters in size, but that's a
drawback of the powerpc's internals' design in RTEMS.

But I wonder what these "eabi" packages actually contain, because the
official RTEMS powerpc toolchain rpms are supposed to be called
powerpc-rtems-* :-)
