True, and I usally Googlelize and use Debian packages (or make them myself) 
whenever possible.
Sadly, it's many programs that don't have patches or are upgraded yet, and I 
hope that major Linux distros will come with the newest GCC's so some 
developers will be forced to do something about it.

This is some of the programs that don't compile on 3.1 and 3.0.4 but in 
2.95.3 (at least on my system):
wvstreams-3.70 (wvdial does on 3.1)

Not in 3.1 but in 3.0.4:

And as I understand, gcc 3.2.* are even more stricter (wich is a good 
thing), so I might have to compile and install 3.0.4 and 2.95.3 again.

Well, I think I will wait a little bit longer and see what the LFS-cvs or 
LFS-4.1 come up with.

Thanks for your comments.
