Hi Galen,
glad you're back.

Both egcs's cpp and gcc 2.8's cpp have problems that show up with
imake-generated Makefiles (#17307). These will have to be solved before we
move away from gcc as the standard compiler.

I did the non-maintainer release of 2.8.0 in experimental.  I agree that in
the current situation, egcc is the preferred compiler. I do think however we
should have a gcc 2.8.0 package available, and encourage maintainers to test
their packages against it. Given the problems, experimental is probably the
best location.

I'd like to encourage you to build gcc and egcs fully bootstrapped (#17154)
and with an additional debian/rules target for running the testsuite (gcc
doesn't have an integrated one yet; egcs does, but requires a "build of the
day" dejagnu).
