If it is built with gcc-3.2 and it needs a symbol from libgcc-3.2, then
the resulting package will depend on gcc-3.2.
I can't think of an easy fix. The packages in unstable are supposed to move to
testing as-is, and IMHO automatically trying to re-build them in testing
when that doesn't work because of auto-generated dependencies (how do you
find those?) sort of defeats the whole idea.
Maybe it's time to force gcc-3.2 into testing..?
