Judging from conversation on debian-glibc, it sounds like AMD64 really
wants to use gcc 3.4, which is not tenable for sarge because it involves
an API change (see Matthias Klose's recent mail to debian-release and
debian-glibc). Can you explain how critical this is to the port?

I think attempting to force their hand this way is one of the least
helpful things you could possibly have done.
