Hi all. Like posted in this topic( https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=110301 ), my problem 
doesn't seem to be solved. 
Color gcc is not called by gcc and thus not colorizing the output of gcc. 
The funny thing is that if i call "colorgcc" directly when compiling some code, I get colorized 
It may sound stupid but this script helped quite a lot to point out warnings and to see immediatly 
where I went wrong. It's really a big help.

Hasn't anyone else had this problem?
Anyone have any ideas on how to solve this problem? 

gcc: gcc (GCC) 4.5.2
colorgcc: colorgcc 1.3.2-6

Thanks in advance,
