The support for using these packages just freshly added to
bsd.compiler.mk. I haven't experienced problems yet, but my testing
has been very limited to only a small set of packages. The latest
pkgsrc only pulls in dependencies for the compilers that it needs, so
if you are only building C software, then you won't be required to
have a C++ compiler installed.

I'm not sure what you mean by "multiple installations of GCC". If you
are requiring all of pkgsrc to be built using gcc3-*, then I recommend
adding 'GCC_REQD+= 3.3' to your /etc/mk.conf.
