I'm thinking I've got a problem caused by some packages being compiled with a different version of gcc than I am using to compile new programs.
I would like to rebuild all packages on the system using the same default gcc version and flags. Is there some way to use pacman/abs to rebuild all installed packages from their PKGBUILDs?
I think that is it. I am reading up on srcpac, and will hopefully learn enough to do some documentation for it.
I just need to actually use it now, to get the feel for it.
But...I believe it should be able to fix your problem for you.

there's was an option like "makepkg world" to build all packages in a directory, but I don't remember the parameter.
it will be useful to set an output directory
Srcpac? Hmm, never heard of that one... I'll have to check out the man page...
pacman -S srcpac
"just below me"
makeworld -bf /mnt/bigdrive/packages *
Should that do it?
Oh yeah, I switched to makeworld -bc /mnt/bigdrive/packages * from the /var/abs directory, just so I wouldn't junk the drive up with an assload of source code.
Unfortunately, that builds everything whether I need it or not. Whatever...
I'll check back on it once in a while, maybe it'll be done in a week.
I am not your friend
Ehh, I might try that later. As is, I already have all of base compiled, and most of daemons. I might as well let it finish and have my own repository of fresh compiled packages.
I'll experiment with srcpac later, the --help with extremely sparse.
