Other people say that certain versions of KDE compile fine, but I can't
seem to get them to (kdelibs).  I asked them first.

I know, I know, but every program that I try to compile has a different
problem.  And AFAIK, it's not because include/linux/* doesn't match the
kernel.  Basically, I'd just like to know if anyone knows of any big
problems with either the new gccs or with some standard libraries that are
in potato.

It sorta sucks when you try to live on the bleeding edge, but you can't
compile things properly.
