To migrate to the amd64/gcc-3.4 archive, every installed package which
links to libstdc++5 (i.e. basically every packages which uses C++) has
to be forced to be reinstalled using the respective package from the
amd64/gcc-3.4 archive. Otherwise problems may occur resulting from an
incompatibility between libstdc++5 from gcc-3.3 an libstdc++6 from
gcc-3.4. I do not know of any other problems with the migration (besides
the fact that there are still about 100 packages missing from the
amd64/gcc-3.4 archive which are available in the gcc-3.3 based archive).
