1 it seems packages are failing when built with glibc-2.8 and/or gcc-4.3. these
2 are issues in the package, not the toolchain. previous versions were lazy
3 and included API "bleeding" which packages took advantage of. with these
4 newer versions, things bleed less means those packages break.
6 some common examples:
7 - code not including limits.h yet using defines from it
8 - code using GNU-specific features but not defining _GNU_SOURCE for it
9 - maybe some other stuff
11 please refrain from assigning to toolchain. if you have questions, feel free
12 to ask.
