This is a problem, caused by the *introduction* of gcc-4.1 into the archive,
which will be fixed (well, fixable) when gcc-4.1 is the default compiler. 
So this is a reason for getting gcc-4.1 as default, not against it.  (It's
also another pool of porters you can tap to do NMUs for the switch, which is
why I mentioned it to you :)
