Why replace libgcc1, libstc++6, et al?

I am upgrading Debian Squeeze systems from TDE 3.5.12 to 3.5.13.

The upgrades seem to work fine omitting the following packages:
  gcc-4.5-base 4.5.2-8ubuntu4 i386
  libgcc1 1:4.5.2-8ubuntu4 i386
  libgfortran3 4.5.2-8ubuntu4 i386
  libgomp1 4.5.2-8ubuntu4 i386
  libstdc++6 4.5.2-8ubuntu4 i386

I am loathe to install non-Debian versions of these packages in
case they cause problems with other Debian software, either now
or in future.  Is there any reason why Trinity needs to replace
such critical packages?
