For our purposes, running a self-compiled MySQL db server, it wasn't
stable until we converted from pure64 to gcc-3.4. (Even compiling the
server with gcc-3.4 under pure64 wasn't enough.) We'd run "make test"
after compiling the server, and it would fail one of the 206 tests
(typically a replication test, but it varied) one out of every twenty
or so times through "make test".
With gcc-3.4 the problem went away.
pure64 obviously works for a lot of people, but if you have trouble
with pure64 I'd recommend seeing if the problems go away with gcc-3.4.
