[arch-general] How best to downgrade gcc to 4.4 or 4.3?

  After running into a gcc 4.5.2 segfault, the trinity developer suggested a
test to downgrade gcc to 4.4 or 4.3 and see if the gcc issue and issue
concerning iccconfig.cpp go away. Looking through my old packages, the earliest
I can find is 4.5.1.

  How best to downgrade?... and will I break everything if I do? My thought was
just to pull the ABS pkgbuild and change pkgver back to 4.4.x, but I don't know
if this will miss any patches, etc.. that may have been in place for earlier
versions that are no longer there. Is there any old archive for pkgbuilds that
would have an old gcc 4.4 or 4.3 in it?

  (obviously, if I knew the answers -- I wouldn't ask :)
