If you do the switch, please also add mips and mipsel, that would avoid
you to have to complain in two weeks that these architectures have not
yet been switched.
Is there a reason not to switch the remaining (release) arches
(ia64, kfreebsd-*, sparc, s390)? Maybe hurd-i386 too?
I don't know, and I will not invest time to check. If you did check, and if you
are confident to fix issues on these architectures, then please tell here.
At least for other ports this seems to be possible (s390: Bastian Blank,
kfreebsd-*: Aurelian, Petr).
I assume you want to release with at least 4.6 on all arches as
the default, so I see no point in waiting with switching if
there are no known issues.
I will not work on toolchain issues specific to these architectures for the
wheezy release, so if nobody steps forward, then at least I will not change the
default for these architectures.
