Yes, gcc-3.3 used to miscompile gnustep-base on amd64. The build
of many gnustep-related packages stopped with something like 
"autogsdoc ... error" if I remember correctly. 

I have to re-check if this is still the case.

kaffe used to work fine for quite some time on amd64, but the latest
versions either stop with "java.lang.NullPointerException" or get into
an endless loop when I try to build a java package. Unfortunately,
libgtk-java is not arch:all. We need to get kaffe fixed somehow :)

This was a problem with an older version of ppp that seems to be fixed. 
portslave builds fine now.

I still have to check this one further.
