Re: defaulting to GCC-4.7 for kfreebsd
As long as amd64 and i386 switch too, then I think it would be okay for
us to do the same? But I really want to hear confirmation from Robert
I don't think I am really qualified/knowledged to make an informed
decision here -- the people with the real knowledge in kfreebsd
internals are Robert and Petr. I was hoping to get input from them.
I don't think changing the default makes any difference to us. We
already hardcode specific GCC version in places that could be affected
by a new version.
In general, it is better for us to use same gcc version as
(linux-)i386, hurd-i386 and (linux-)amd64. The exception might be in
kfreebsd specific packages and glibc, but they can set non-default
gcc easily individually.
So please switch default gcc to the same version as under linux i386/amd64
also for kfreebsd i386/amd64.
