I can in fact wait a bit for the gcc  but the page you pointed out is 
interesting and I should have known. But I could not find the experimental 
build logs in there.
   I play with compiling openoffice myself because I sometimes have to wait 
months for the official amd64 debian compiler to do it (I'm not complaining, 
thanks for the job you do if you read it :) and I want to have the newest 
version to check its compatibility with MS-Word myself.
