It entirely depends on KDE really, and in the case of extragear applications, 
on the developers of those.

If KDE (or Max for amarok) says "KDE 4.0 (or amarok 1.3) supports gcc 3.2 and 
newer" and stuff breaks on gcc 2.95 and the fix we can come up with for 
FreeBSD 4 is rejected by the maintainer of the respective code, then that 
part of KDE will not make it into FreeBSD 4.

As long as FreeBSD 4 is officially supported by the FreeBSD project however, 
we will keep trying to get KDE (including stuff in kdeextragear-*) compiling 
and working on it and merge the required changes into the upstream sources. 

And since KDE 4.0 is scheduled to be released quite a bit earlier than January 
2007 we will have to try and make it work there, too (although, quite 
frankly, I loathe dealing with FreeBSD 4's obsolete compiler and lack of 
modern POSIX compliance very much and personally wouldn't mind one bit if 
something very fundamental in kdelibs would break very early in KDE 4.0's 
development and gcc 2.95 fixes, if we can come up with some, would be
