gcc-3.2-pre broke at the beginning of 2003 for compiling the kernel on
sparc32. it got fixed at some point along the way but debian switched
to gcc-3.3-pre even before there was a gcc-3.2 final. you are telling
me you managed to compile a working kernel on a sparc32 around let's
say april of this year?

we've had this discussion before (on may 2 to be precise), you little
twerp. i accept bugs in general (and i've been using unstable now for
about 8 years). i find it harder to deal with breaking _essential_
packages like gcc. got it?
