Sorry. Of course, I only meant KDE 3.3.0 with gcc-2.95 _on Linux_ which 
apparently does not work.

Just stating the obvious: Since this particular bug seems to be 
Linux-specific (which is somewhat surprising) all checking the 
KDE/FreeBSD team does is not sufficient to guarantee that KDE/Linux 
works with gcc-2.95. OTOH, how likely is it that there's another 
serious Linux-only bug in gcc which has not been discovered until now?
