No, but I have been using that compiler to build my kernel and XFree86
binaries, so far without problems that suggest a broken compiler.
My VIA sound chip also works with the OSS driver on 2.4 and with both OSS
and ALSA on 2.6-test.

Stupid question: did you load the snd-ioctl32.o module?
Also, are you using the kernel.org sources or the ones from x86-64.org?

You could try the cross tools from SuSE, see
