The standard version supplied in netbsd-1-6:

$ gcc -v
Using builtin specs.
gcc version 2.95.3 20010315 (release) (NetBSD nb3)

However it was indeed the newer standard version that was used in
netbsd-3 (where the build succeeded and the result runs fine):

$ gcc -v
Using built-in specs.
Configured with: /home/nick/work/netbsd/src/tools/gcc/../../gnu/dist/gcc/co=
nfigure --enable-long-long --disable-multilib --enable-threads --disable-sy=
mvers --build=3Di386-unknown-netbsdelf2.0. --host=3Di386--netbsdelf --targe=
Thread model: posix
gcc version 3.3.3 (NetBSD nb3 20040520)

BTW, trying lang/gcc3 on the netbsd-1-6 machines is out of the question,
as per this comment I added some time ago in my pkgchk.conf file:

# XXX ARGH! binutils causes major havoc on alpha when gcc finds /usr/pkg/bi=
n/ld first!
# XXX it also causes conflicts with gdb6 (which installs part of its own bi=
#devel/binutils			primary
#lang/gcc3-c			primary
#lang/gcc3-c++			primary
#lang/gcc3-f77			primary
#lang/gcc3-objc			primary
