The 12 patches enumerated in my last email include all changes which are
necessary to build the 'standard' and 'base' system for amd64 with
gcc-3.4 as the default compiler.
The amd64 port will have to use gcc-3.4/g++-3.4 for some packages that
do not compile at all with gcc-3.3 anyway (e.g. the mozillas, galeon,
boost, gnustep-base). Of course, some other packages will break with
gcc-3.4. But for most of those packages, patches have been filed to the
BTS already. Many of those gcc-3.4 patches have already been applied
by the maintainers (thanks!).
