gcc3.4 has better amd64 support (mainly faster). A handfull of
compiler ICE are fixed while a handfull of c++ incompatibilites will
probably show up and cause FTBFS.

The fixed and new bugs probably even out so the remaining argument
would be speed.

Starting with gcc-3.4 would also save the gcc 3.3 -> 3.4 transition
but the rest of debian will have to do that anyway so we save nothing.
