Personally, I'd rather see the package building with older compiler than
newer one, downgrading compiler is usually easier path.

You really need to watch what you say. That is at least the fourth time you have implicitly or explicitly insulted DragonFly on these lists and that is uncalled for. FYI, DragonFly has two base compilers and the default compiler is gcc 4.4, still true for version 3.2 to be released in two weeks.

Debian Wheezy, which will be released very soon, is also based on gcc 4.7. You don't want pkgsrc on Debian? You don't consider Debian "stable"?

The problems that I'm highlighting arrived with GCC 4.6 which was released 25 March 2011. Are you seriously advocating that any system with a compiler newer than March 2011 should be disregarded?

Moreover, GCC 4.1, 4.2, 4.3, and 4.4 have all reached END-OF-LIFE and are no longer maintained! I can't believe that avoiding GCC 4.6.3 will be a policy here. That would be wrong.
