Umm... the compiler update to gcc-3.4.2 went into CURRENT and will be
in 5.3-RELEASE.  STABLE is still 4.10-STABLE (for a few more weeks at
least), and it's still using gcc 2.95.4.

As a matter of policy 4.10-STABLE isn't going to have any disruptive
upgrades of major software systems, unless that's the only way to
solve a security problem.  You can update to the latest 4-STABLE
without worrying too much about stuff suddenly stopping working.
There will be a sendmail 8.12.x to 8.13.x upgrade involved if you
update from July 24th sources, but that's relatively minor, and
sendmail should happily carry on working with no corrective action
