The gcc-3.2 packages are still in testing; you can still install them.
I haven't needed to try this yet, but I suspect you could insert a line
"CC=gcc-3.2" in /etc/kernel-pkg.conf to compile your kernels with gcc-3.2
even if your system's default compiler were gcc-3.3.
I don't see why you would need to hold gcc3.2; does it get overwritten by
gcc-3.3? I have gcc-2.95, gcc-3.0, and gcc-3.2 on my system and they don't
step on each other.
