It looks like kfreebsd-* also made the switch and there's been a request
to switch for mips and mipsel.

Looking through the bug list for src:gcc-4.5, none of the open issues
seem to be specific to the remaining release architectures which haven't
switched yet - i.e. ia64, s390 and sparc.  Are you aware of any issues
which would preclude switching the default on those architectures?  Has
there been any discussion with the port maintainers regarding switching?
