Last time I tried a mips build, it would fail the compile unless I was
using _exactly_ 3.4.4 (I didn't tried older versions, but did try
3.4.6, for ex.).

If 3.4.4 works where 3.4.6 doesn't, you should report this as a
bug; either here, or to the GCC team (but please be aware that the
3.4 series isn't supported anymore), or to whoever built that
compiler for you.

So I also think the 3.4 series will still have to be
around for a while.

Huh?  3.4 doesn't work for you, so that's why it should stay
a supported compiler?
