FreeBSD Security Advisory FreeBSD-SA-11:07.chroot - gcc 4.2.2+

Do the changes to libc imply that community members that install and build their system using gcc 4.2.2+ will remain vulnerable?
If so, should the /usr/src/UPDATING reflect this ongoing exposure?

(I note that 8.2S uses gcc version 4.2.2 20070831 prerelease [FreeBSD]
9.0S has gcc 4.2.1)

Kind regards, Dewayne
