   What is the point of this message? I asked for help and unless you
have a file I asked for, please spare me the lecture on how to do
compiler updates. I did it several times and full package runs on
multiple architectures were mandatory with all of them, as Kris can

Every compiler update breaks some ports, due to new bugs or more often
due to even more anal code correctness checks implemented with every
new major GCC release. Depending on their seriousness, GCC bugs are
either getting fixed in upstream sources or worked around locally, but
dealing with GCC strictness was always been something that port
maintainers were supposed to do themselves.

3.4.4 - 3.4.6 update broke ports that had the code GCC no longer accepts
as valid C++.
