gcc defaults to gcc-4.4 on Alpha whereas all other architectures (except
m68k and maybe hppa) now default to gcc-4.6. A few packages are failing
to build with gcc-4.4 as the package maintainers are starting to exploit
I had intended to do some testing of gcc-4.6 but have never got around
to it. As (essentially) all other arches are using gcc-4.6 I expect the
likelihood of any nasty surprises is very small. Does anyone object to
me requesting the gcc maintainers to default gcc to gcc-4.6 on Alpha?
