A rebuild test of the current Debian unstable distribution on
x86_64-linux-gnu was done, one rebuild test with the current gcc-4.4
from the branch, and another one with GCC trunk 20100107. The latter did
show about 200 additional build failures, which are listed in [1] (minus
some already known failures due to misconfiguration for the rebuild with
gcc-4.5). The GCC test packages used for the test rebuild are available
for i386 and amd64 at [2].

Lucas did do the test rebuild and a quick analysis of the results,
repeated here:

- some symbols problems (sqlxx, strigi)
- tests failure (incorrect code generation?)
- many new gcc errors (compiler becoming stricter, as usual?)
- some ICEs
- several builds where g++ hanged (e.g fwbuilder, but there are others).
the timeout for the builds was set to 60min.

I'll go through the list of build failures this week, trying to file
appropriate bug reports for GCC or the distribution. If you do want to
help with this work, please update the wiki page before you start
working on a package.
