Are you sure none of them links against any bumped library? It seemed 
easier to me to rebuild just to be sure. If you're pretty sure, I'll 
just remove those from testing. FYI, all but libpqxx seem to be 
rebuilding fine, which needs more recent snapshots to compile with gcc 
4.3, so we definitely want to avoid rebuilding it.
