That's correct.  On a NetBSD-current system built today:

	% uname -a
	NetBSD odysseus 1.6ZH NetBSD 1.6ZH (ODYSSEUS from GENERIC-1.583,CARDBUS-1.71)
	#1: Tue Jan 20 09:15:50 EST 2004

	% cc -v
	Using built-in specs.
	Configured with: /usr/src/tools/gcc/../../gnu/dist/gcc/configure
	--enable-long-long --disable-multilib --enable-threads
	--build=i386-unknown-netbsdelf --host=i386--netbsdelf
	--target=i386--netbsdelf : (reconfigured)
	/usr/src/tools/gcc/../../gnu/dist/gcc/configure --enable-long-long
	--disable-multilib --enable-threads --build=i386-unknown-netbsdelf1.6W
	--host=i386--netbsdelf --target=i386--netbsdelf
	Thread model: posix
	gcc version 3.3.2 (NetBSD nb1 20031026)

NetBSD 2.0 will contain ship with at least gcc 3.3.2.
