The gpm patch is only partly gcc-3.4 specific. There is also a general 
FTBFS for all architectures when building the documentation. However,

In util-linux the 'fdisk-udeb' binary package is not enabled for amd64. 
But the 'fdisk-udeb' package has priority 'extra' and my Status Report 
was referring only to the 'standard' and 'base' system. Also fdisk and
some rdev related things will not be available for amd64, but the 
util-linux package builds, installs and works on amd64 even without a 

Of course there are a lot more packages with priorities 'optional' 
and 'extra' which need patches for amd64 at the moment. Fortunately,
many bugs with patches have been filed to the BTS for these issues
and more and more of those patches get applied and uploaded every day.
