How to put it, I don't consider gcc 3.2 as "known to be broken". gcc 3.2 is 
perfectly able to compile complete KDE 3.5. It's just not able to grok 
*advanced* template stuff (/me neither). 
If we consider everything which is not working 100% perfectly or having 100% 
of the features implemented correctly as broken then KDE is "known to be 
broken" from version 1.0 up to 3.5, see bugs.kde.org. 

I will try to build a simple testcase for the problems in kxmlcore and if we 
don't find a solution for this I'll update to 3.3.
