Unknown at this time, but there was significant regression in packages 
after moving to gcc 4.4.  I don't expect much regression with 4.7 
because NetBSD uses 4.5 and SunOS and Linux use 4.6 and even 4.7 now so 
others are "blazing the trail" with respect to fixing GCC upgrade 

This doesn't concern most users because the default compiler will be 4.4 
until 4.7 is fully tested.  That will take some months and many package
