If the package doesn't compile with gcc-4.0 because your code needs to be
updated, you should fix your code.  You should only depend on older
compiler versions in the case of a bug in the current version (or in
exceptional cases, such as a kernel or libc needing a particular compiler
version because the package abuses the compiler).
