No, that's wrong.  Any version of PyPy supports any version of gcc
within reason, and any version of Boehm as long as it's not a too
buggy version.  But PyPy from, say, the month of January only works with the
version of the py lib that was the one included at that time.  Right
now I can say "hg up -r xyz" for some xyz from a few months ago and
just run py.test in it with no further installation, which is
essential from time to time (e.g. to run hg bisect).

A bientôt,
