I don't know what arch you're using, but recent GCC versions have
worked for me on m68k to build kernels with.

I'd suggest that you wait for a couple of days and get 2.7.0. It'll
build out of the box on NetBSD (at least Amiga, but I bet the common
archs will buil with no problem). G++ has had *many* bugfixes.
