Ok, I did that. I tried to compile MPlayer forcing the compiler to
"/usr/lib/gcc-snapshot/bin/gcc" and using "--disable-gcc-check" (or
something similar) as the configure script won't use gcc-4.0 if I
don't use that switch. But the compilation process fails...

Should I send here the error messages (or maybe better, try to fix
them myself if I can), or is gcc-snapshot-4.0 just out of the question
before it is properly released?

The reason I'm asking that (NB: I did read the nag screen about how
it's useless to report bugs on unsupported compilers) is because the
changelog states that MPlayer-pre6 got fixed some time ago to compile
with gcc-snapshot-4.0, so I guess some people think that supporting it
is a good idea...
