First off, congrats on doing it this way. Locally rebuilding a newer Debian
package against the given libraries of an older release is the Right Thing
as it gives you the full package management control.

Secondly, I suspect gcc et al are playing a role. Stable only seems to have
gcc-3.0 whereas testing has gcc-3.2.1  I am currently building 1.7.0 on
testing just to see if it works.  [ I had built the 1.6.2 packages on
unstable with gcc-3.2.2 ]


Prediction is very difficult, especially about the future.
