That was if you did not use qemu that did *not* compile or run with a
gcc never then gcc-3 for a couple of years...

Also search for "gcc-porting" in b.g.o and guess what: there are many
packages that fits this description for gcc, qemu was just a special
case since for it it actually took YEARS before upstream released a
version that worked with gcc-4, most other packages is often easier to
patch (since it is mostly compile-time brokenness related to headers or
other "small" fixes) and our awesome toolchain guys helps fixing it up
before it hits ~arch.
