Just FYI, a few brave souls like myself have already been running GCC
3.3 of CVS for a period of time, and have found quite a few solutions to

There's a thread in Other things Gentoo on the forums that you might
want to read, I forgot the complete link and I lack a browser right now
so go search :)
