It could already compile ffplay/mplayer, but it wouldn't link non-PIC  
code into loadable plugins (like VLC/Perian use). That works again now.
It also comes with gcc 4.2 and llvm-gcc, but I haven't benchmarked  
them yet; I don't think llvm can even compile the inline asm yet, but  
they're working on it.

No, it installs over them.
