Bug#473358: linux-latest-2.6: kernel not compiled with current gcc

Package: linux-latest-2.6
Severity: important

I've had build problems with both VMware Server and nvidia complaining of a gcc version 
mismatch... the current version they want to build with  is gcc 4.3 , the gcc used on the current 
kernel version is 4.1. 

While changing the gcc symlink is easy enough, what's easy for me isn't going to be easy for a 
newbie. Can you distribute future kernel upgrades compiled with the current gcc?
