Looking through the pkgsrc-users mailing lists, there's been people
talking about breakage in places like kde and qemu caused by using gcc4;
however, it may be patched up by now.  The best way to check this would be
to do a bulk build and compare the number of successful package builds
using 4.1.  I don't know if there's time to fit this in.
