Of course, that's really a good reason to do regular builds with gcc 
3.2 to see if it is able to compile it.
We don't have to port the compiler for this, though, we can just 
compile it on another platform (using gcc 3.2, or even Intel's 
compiler) - the code just have to compile, it doesn't have to run :-)

Anyway, I wouldn't say no to a good port of gcc 3.2 ;-)
