Problem description

This fixes these bugs in the gcc-33 package:
  • /lib/cpp was packaged and conflicted with the main package.
  • The library path for packages built with this GCC was not set and so some applications could not find their libraries.
  • A floating point comparison with a constant could give wrong results due to a bug in an optimization of such operations.
Additionally the preprocessor define __amd64__ is defined for
compilation of x86-64 aka AMD64 code in addition to the
define __x86_64__.
