[pstricks] Points of Intersection

All,
Suppose that I want a triangle having sides measuring 4, 5, and 6
units. Using Geometer's Sketchpad, or Geogebra, I could draw a
segment AB of length 6, then add circles of radius 4 and 5 with
centers at A and B, respectively. I then could choose on of the
points of intersection of the two circles, call it C, and I would
have the needed triangle ABC.
Now, in pstricks I could do some trig, come up with some angles, and
use a polar coordinate representation of the point C.
What I am wondering is this: Is there a slicker way of accomplishing
this goal of drawing a triangle with sides 4, 5, and 6 units?
Suggestions are most welcome.
Thanks.
D.
