I do not currently have any plan to upgrade this port to a newer 
version.  I think that if a gcc-3.x or gcc-4.x cross compiler is needed 
it should be added as a separate port due to the significant difference 
from 2.95.  I, for example, want to use 2.95 to produce binaries 
compatible with a certain embedded system that I do not have source for. 
  Perhaps I am unique in this need for an older version.  I did attempt 
to make a port for arm-elf-gcc-3.4.4 but didn't really get too far.

Perhaps I could help if you (or someone else) decides to make an updated
