Sure. PTXdist is not a product but a development tool.

Gcc 3.2 was always known for producing incorrect code for ARM, so I
didn't use it. At the moment I'm trying to migrate to 3.x as more and
more packets (kernel, glibc) need a newer compiler, and as 3.3.2 was
already out when I started I used that one. So consider this a test
stage for a "real" stable release.
