This is complicated enough that each group probably deserves a separate thread. In particular, I think the gcc situation is intertwined with how pkgsrc copes with c++, and that seems messy. With xen, I am not so sure about 45, and also why is xenkernel33 still around? I can see having the last PCI passthrough versions, but it seems that's 3.1, not 3.3.
