I object as well.  build-essential should point to gcc/g++ and go with
gcc-defaults.  I don't see any good reason to specify versioning there
and feel it would be an overall bad idea.  The point is that we want to
build things using gcc3.2, not just have it around (which we have for
quite some time).
