This is because the installer uses the debootstrap package from
the gcc-3.3 archive which installs gcc-3.3-base and libstdc++5 and
not gcc-3.4-base and libstdc++6. The gcc-3.4 archive has a patched
debootstrap which installs gcc-3.4-base and libstdc++6.
Maybe the debootstrap in the gcc-3.3 archive could be patched to
additionally install gcc-3.4-base and libstdc++6 on amd64? This would
not do any harm and it would make it possible to use a single installer
for both the gcc-3.3 and the gcc-3.4 archive. Otherwise I would have to
make a separate installer for the gcc-3.4 archive.
