GCC causing problems it seems.

Hi, I seem to be getting errors in relation to GCC it seems as I cant upgrade alot of pkgs until I can upgrade or use a later version of GCC.
The error I get is along the lines of ( cc1: error: unrecognized command line option "-Wno-pointer-sign"
*** Error code 1 )
Anyway I was wondering if anyone could tell me how I can get My FreeBSD to use a newer version of GCC. I was thinking of upgrading to GCC 4.4.0
I also have GCC2.8.1_3 installed & I also have GCC4.2.5 which I think I upgraded to along time ago but it either isnt recognised or isnt high enough as I still get these errors.
So I was wondering how to go about fixing this error so I can begin to upgrade my software again,
Like do I have to force a deletion of the old GCC first or is there a way to cause a later version to be recognised after upgrading GCC ,as I am not sure if its OK to have multiple versions installed etc...

jasons-braain# uname -a
FreeBSD jasons-braain 6.3-RC2 FreeBSD 6.3-RC2 #30: Sun Jan 6 01:30:27 UTC 2008 root@tinderbox.3c-consulting.lokal:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/GENERIC i386

Thanks anyOne.
