Currently, it is the case that some packages are expecting gcc and g++

gcc or g++.
Just curious, do you have a list of such packages?

Actually, we are building it.
We have setup a parallel build infrastructure (wanna-buildd + buildd) with some changes (basically, making sure that packages will respect CC & CXX). The rebuild for amd64 and i386 are currently ongoing (as you can imagine, it takes a while). We will share the result once we have them.
