I've been using GCC 3.x for everything on my system for at least a year 
now and every package has been compiled with a 3.x version. Currently, 
I'm using 3.2.3.

What was your previous version? Was it 3.x or 2.95.x? If it was 2.95.x, 
you may need to recompile some of the libraries you wish to link to. You 
probably only need to recompile the C++ stuff, since the ABI 
(Application Binary Interface) changed from 2.95 to 3.x. If you're just 
upgrading from 3.x to 3.3, disregard everything I've said.
