As it seems some others also volunteered to give test resources, I hope that somebody else will donate a gcc-4.5 test runner for the release branch. Because you have access to icc compilers, regular runs of your latest installed icc version for the release branch would perhaps make even better use of your resources, as these compilers are already installed on your machines (and it's easier for other people to get access to gcc-4.5 than to get access to icc).
I use a gcc-4.5 for windows from <http://www.equation.com/servlet/equation.cmd?fa=fortran> for my tests, so I haven't built a gcc-4.5 on linux from sources myself. However, one of my colleagues has built gcc-4.5 from sources, and I haven't heard him complain, so I guess it won't be too difficult.
