Thanks for pointing that out, Erik!  It seems, I _do_ have some users
of this port, after all. :-)

I'll add a note on that to the Makefile.

Miguel (et al), while GCC 3.2 probably will continue to work, my nightly
builders and checks before committing an update to the port only exercise
GCC 3.3 both on 4.8-STABLE and 5.1-CURRENT, so it's probably safer in the
long run to use that.
