I hate to say, but the list of failed packages needs to get
investigated a little bit, since not all failures seem to be GCC 3.2
and syntax related:

apt: failed with "debian/rules:20: build/environment.mak: No such file or directory"
gg: failed with "/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -ljpeg"
hylafax: failed because textfmt wasn't built[1]
latte: failed with "Your STL string implementation is unusable."
nana: failed with "make: dh_testdir: Command not found"
qnix: failed with "make: execvp: ./configure: Permission denied"

Finally, the seventh build log I viewed contained a real GCC 3.2 error:

/usr/include/c++/3.2/backward/backward_warning.h:32:2: warning:
#warning This file includes at least one deprecated or antiquated h
eader. Please consider using one of the 32 headers found in section of the C++ standard. Examples include substituting the <X>
header for the <X.h> header for C++ includes, or <sstream> instead of
the deprecated header <strstream.h>. To disable this war ning use

This looks like there is advice hidden in a manual and all maintainers
of the corresponding packages should be informed about upcoming
failures in their packages.

Willy, are you going to add this to the transition propsal?



 1. I seem to remember to stomp over such a problem in one of our most
    recent security builds.

Never trust an operating system you don't have source for!
