If I understood things correctly, the pure64 archive is the one which is
supposed to become the official debian unstable distribution. The "gcc34"
version, which is actually compiled with the latest compiler to maximise
optimisation, is a little bit more on the experimental side. If you favour
maximum stability, use pure64, if you accept a little bit more instability
for (supposedly) best performance, go with gcc34. By the way, at least
some of this instability is probably due to the fact that not all of the
archive has been recompiled with gcc4, and there is some binary library
incompatibility bitween the two. This will go away in time.
