2.6.11 is obsolete and is scheduled for removal. You're better of 
installing the new linux-image-2.6.12 (built with gcc-4.0).

Note however that the packaging for 2.6.12 is completely different from 
older versions and quirks are still being worked out. That's also the 
reason why it has not yet been announced officially.
