I trust these are the architectures that are okay so far:
| gcc48_archs = amd64 armel armhf arm64 i386 x32 kfreebsd-amd64
kfreebsd-i386 hurd-i386

So the following would be the architectures for which some response is
requested urgently from port maintainers, to confirm they are ready for
GCC 4.8 as default:

Release arches: ia64 mips mipsel powerpc s390 s390x sparc

All the above have built gcc-4.8.1-2 or higher.

Other ports:  alpha hppa* m68k powerpcspe ppc64 sh4* sparc64*

* these ports don't appear to have successfully built GCC 4.8 yet.
