Can we build gcc-3.4 with a libgcc1 that uses a different soname or a
gcc-3.4 that uses the old libgcc1 from 3.3?
The problem is that once gcc-3.4 gets pulled into the build chroot the
libgcc1 never gets removed again. Without that problem we could have
gcc-3.3 and gcc-3.4 installed in parallel and just patch the few
failures to use gcc-3.4 instead.
Has anyone tried to compile the gcc-3.3 failures with gcc-snapshot?
Maybe thats the way to avoid the gcc ICE.
