I asked the same question just a few weeks ago.  :)

gcc-3.4 began, and still is, an experimental branch of pure64 using a later 
version of gcc.  It began by using gcc-3.4 for building itself, hence its 
name, and is now almost completely converted over to gcc-4.0.  As I 
understand it, it will always remain an experimental branch and at some point 
in the distant future, when pure64 upgrades to gcc-4.0, will simply go away.  
For starting out with AMD64, you should stick with pure64 (now called 
debian-pure64 on alioth).
