I've been using gcc 3.02 for a while now, as a 64-bit and 32-bit compiler
on solaris-sparc and as a 32 bit compiler on intel (linux debian), no probs
compling lots of stuff, C,C++,java and objective C. Use it to compile my
kernels and I've built koffice with it.
Didnt use packages though, built gcc from source :o)

had some pain on sparc, but mainly due to non 64-bit clean socket functions
generating SIGBUS, that's a really a library/code problem.

I'd recommend it, but from source :o)
