The shared libgcc1 is built by gcc-3.0 and gcc-3.1. The libgcc1
package is built from the gcc-3.1 sources.

Not before g++-3.2 becomes the default compiler.

Maybe it's better to keep out 3.1 out of testing at all. gcc-3.2 will
be released soon (3.2 == 3.1.1 + g++ ABI changes).
the error in the copyright file is not the only reason, the build of
the sparc64 compiler currently fails.
