Do you have experience in linking libraries compiled with GCC 3.x with
other code compiled with GCC 4? Within EMSCB we try to move towards
recent GCC versions and therefore currently encounter this problem.

Do you have a list of packages not compatible with GCC 4 due to the
above reasons? Probably we don't need these packages anyway. BTW: Why
does l4io need Linux 2.4 sources? And: I thought you already moved to
Linux 2.6 completely?
