I believe so. The 3.3.3-"CURRENT" has fixed a number of serious bugs,
especially, optimizer bugs in 3.3.2, and the snapshot chosen for the port
should be much more stable than 3.3.2-RELEASE. I think that's the reason why
there's no gcc 3.3.2 port. AFAIK, gcc 3.4.0 is planned to be released in the
near future, and 3.3.x is somewhat "STABLE" branch in gcc's notation.
