I thought you were in a hurry to get your program working, weren't
you? If so, what difference does it make how ``primitive'' the
methods are if they let you achieve your goals?
For me, there's no ``primitive'' and ``advanced'' tools; there are
only tools that are right for a certain job and there are tools which
are wrong. If a certain technique gets the job done quickly, it is
the right tool.
But it's your call, the above is only my own opinion.

I think this would get you into more trouble, that's why I suggested
alternative ways. I have built gcc and used beta-quality programs
enough times to know that this is no way to quickly make a buggy
