Ok lets see if I can persuade you

Imagine this scenario

You are trying to compile a program that uses/links against c and c++
code (eg:gstreamer, abiword)

The program fails to compile with an error message suggesting strict
checking is making the build fail.

So to confirm you would like to test compiling with gcc32 and g++32

If it builds you can then confirm that gcc3.3 strictness is the
problem.

Therefore you can write a more considered bug report so the problem
gets fixed in the package
