        -1 from me 
        IMHO I would like it to see them stay in extra
        For example : imlib which has errors compiling with gcc-4.4.0
        compiles fine with gcc-3.4  
        just fixup the PKGBUILD like this:
        # $Id: PKGBUILD 356 2008-04-18 22:56:27Z aaron $
        # Maintainer: dorphell <dorphell at archlinux.org>
        # Committer: Judd Vinet <jvinet at zeroflux.org>
        pkgdesc="General image handling library for X11 and Gtk"
        arch=(i686 x86_64)
        depends=(gtk libungif libpng libtiff libsm)
                debian-bug448360.patch CAN-2004-1026.patch
        build() {
          cd $startdir/src/$pkgname-$pkgver
          patch -Np1 -i ${startdir}/src/debian-bug448360.patch || return
          patch -Np1 -i ${startdir}/src/CAN-2004-1026.patch || return 1
          patch -Np0 -i ${startdir}/src/aclocal-fixes.patch || return 1
          ./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc --enable-shm
          CC=/usr/bin/gcc-3.4 make || return 1
          make DESTDIR=$startdir/pkg install
        and it works
