[aur-general] help needed with x86_64

I am willing to kill this

I have built texlive-bin on i686 a long time ago, and some other TU took 
care of providing it for Arch64. But recently, to my great surprise, the 
above bug report was issued. (Quite amazing!)

A few days ago I decided to liberate a partition and install Arch64 on 
it. I must say, it went without a glitch, and from now on I will be able 
to help keeping x86_64 in sync with i686 (I used Aaron's machine for a 
while, but for some packages it is not convenient, or even impossible to 
rely on a chroot).

So last night I issued a makepkg for texlive-bin on my arch64 system and 
went to bed. But this morning I saw that the build had failed. I have a 
strong intuition that this is related to gcc 4.3, because I have had a 
similar issue with another package which compiled fine with gcc 4.2.3 on 
i686 but failed with gcc 4.3. Since I really have no time to investigate 
the problem and eventually make a patch for gcc 4.3, I would prefer to 
downgrade to gcc 4.2.3 and try to see if it works. Also, since TeXLive 
2008 will be available in about two months, I don't want to spend too 
much time on the 2007 version.

Does anybody have a copy of gcc-4.2.3-*-x86_64.pkg.tar.gz lying in its 
cache? I guess I'd need the corresponding gcc-libs too. That'd be a 
great help (well, I hope!)
