Well, on other OSes they have been compiling new releases with gcc4.2 
without any problems for months, so it's not a gcc problem.
I have discovered that someone has already submitted a case to the root 
developing team in middle january.
They think the problem lies within the gcc command line 
options, but from that moment on no new updates are available. I renewed 
the request to them. So that now they will know that there are 2 people 
using both root and fbsd!
