That was ages ago, and it was C++, not C. The C++ transition is gradual
and isn't really something you should have to worry about in testing.
About the only exception might be packages like mozilla whose plugins
need to be compiled with the same version of g++ as mozilla itself.

As always, you should see what your package manager proposes to do.

Doesn't that require XFree86 4.3? That isn't in testing (or unstable)
