Yes, definitely. Why?

I have no other information and know nothing about the avr-gcc specific
issues in gcc. One can't know everything, and there was no short section
about "gcc versions, avr target and avr-libc" on either project's site
that I saw. (That's just an observation, not a criticism - you guys are
doing a brilliant job!) Arduino does have a lot(!) of users and I have
no reason to think they don't know what they're talking about.

Sure, but when the are several versions and some are reported as buggy
it's a no-brainer which one you pick, until you get better information
like from the horse's mouth :-)

Sounds like time would be better spent on compiling 4.6.2 and testing
that first. I'll put it on my todo list, but I'm only able to package it
for opensuse and whatever else it compiles on their build system.
