Not quite true - gcc3.3 is the default - for reasons to do with
stability and compatibility of the code produced. To "upgrade" to 3.4.4
is easy, check the docs for the way to do it - being gentoo its quite
easy and you can keep using the machine whilst doing it.
GCC4.0 is a different kettle of fish, and from what I can see it
currently produces slower, less efficient code than the gcc 3.x
versions, and had many incompatibilities with current apps though thats
being worked on. GCC 4.0 is about potential and at some point it will
be "time" to move to it, but its not there yet. GCC 3.4.x is probably
the pick of the bunch at the moment.
