I think you need to build with the gcc from unstable to reproduce the failure.
Lenny kernels have been booting fine on my box (SunBlade 1000), unstable kernels
started failing about 3 months ago. I might have some time over the weekend to
build the current unstable kernel with both stable and unstable gcc to verify
that it's unstable gcc which causes problems.
