Not soon.. We have never used .0 releases of gcc because of the
stability, and we have a somewhat unfortunate record of not
feeding back our NetBSD changes, thus making integration
of a new release rather more work than it needs to be,
because all our local changes need to be re-applied.

Hopefully the latter will be in a better state once the
toolchain switch to 2.95.3 is done.
