Right. We are not changing the default to gcc 3.x, it will be used only
to build the kernel. Depending on how things go I might make it the
default to build all kernels, but for the moment it will be used just
to build the amd64 kernel.

Do you foresee any issues for which we wouldn't want to make gcc 3.x
default for everything ? If we are going to look at going ahead with a
newer gcc(as we should), I think we should go ahead and put forth the
effort to make everything compile cleanly under it. I couldn't see the
actual time required to be more than 3 or 4 days, this including the userland.
