Do the changes to libc imply that community members that install
and build their system using gcc 4.2.2+ will remain vulnerable? If
so, should the /usr/src/UPDATING reflect this ongoing exposure?

(I note that 8.2S uses gcc version 4.2.2 20070831 prerelease
[FreeBSD] 9.0S has gcc 4.2.1)

This have nothing to do with gcc as far as I can tell. It does
require changes to your individual applications if they do chroot into
untrusted environment.
