doko told me that this version of gcc-4.3 is not intended for Lenny. To
solve the compliance problem, this version could be copied to the
special suite, in order not to lose it when a new version gets uploaded.

However, as Josselin Mouette pointed on IRC, libgcc1 has an exception to
cover exactly this case:

    In addition to the permissions in the GNU General Public License,
    the Free Software Foundation gives you unlimited permission to
    link the compiled version of this file into combinations with
    other programs, and to distribute those combinations without any
    restriction coming from the use of this file.  (The General Public
    License restrictions do apply in other respects; for example, they
    cover modification of the file, and distribution when not linked
    into a combine executable.)
