fwiw, i'm comfortable with switching the kernel to gcc-4.2. i've been
using it for kernels on all my boxes since around christmas, i believe
(when i found problems with gcc-3.4 that made me move.)

i haven't tried it on any "older" boxes (pa1.1 based) but it seems to be
working well enough both 32-bit and 64-bit on my newer machines.

cheers, kyle
