Actually I have already spent a couple of weeks compiling kde with gcc-3.2 and
have had it installed for a while now.
It started as an exercise to learn how to build debs, but, as is the way of
these things, it all became a bit of a trial. First I was doing it on a
debian/sarge machine but discovered I had build dependencies on packages in
unstable (so I have ended up building a complete debian unstable
configuration inside a chroot environment on this machine so as not to
disturb its operation). Then I had to wrestle with libxml that failed
(2.4.24 was apparently ok - but by then I had already upgraded to a later
release so it wasn't unitl 2.4.28 that it worked again), various dependancies
on automake, but needing automake1.5, and a problem I discovered today when I
started to rebuild from the rc5 tarballs (libdb2-dev is a dependency for
kdelibs - but at least another package I build must have required a
dependency on libdb3-dev because that is installed in my chroot environment.
I thought that gcc might also help kde apps to start faster - but that might
not be true.
Anyway, I think it is too late to revert now - I don't intend to do much more
as I expect the real 3.1 packages to come fairly soon now anyway.
