We're working on gcc 4.6.1 in Owl-current.  Some packages are fixed to
be buildable under gcc 4.6.1, but not all of them.  Current list of
broken packages is as following:

kernel
glibc
libtool
perl

If you have patched for them - please share.

IIRC, we need glib upgrade to enable -fstack-protector, it needs libc
support, which we don't currently have with old version of glibc.

But also we need glibc update before updating other packages/packetizing
new packages as the fixes to the build process of RPM may vary between
old and new glibc.  As we want to minimize future patching, we'll
upgrade glibc first.

Thanks,
