Why were gcc-3.3-base and libstdc++5 selected instead of
gcc-3.4 and libstdc++6?

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.

I had expected that debootrap is grabbed from the archive server
at installation time. Would be easier to keep things consistent.

I will try to rebuild monolithic using the gcc-3.4 archive and send
a note.

Any schedule out to get rid of gcc-3.3 for amd64 completely?
I am using gcc 3.4 and 3.4.1 for my private projects since they
were released. Works for me.
