The pure64 port decided against using gcc-3.4 some month back becuse
we wanted to use only what is in sid (excatly so that inclusion in sid
and maybe sarge stays possible). Some people are recompiling all of
sid with gcc-3.4 now to see how feasable using it is and it would be
greatly welcome. But nearly everything so far works with
gcc-3.4 might be prefereable but in no way required for amd64.
