Hi, Dylan.

I want to make use of Debian-Med packages that have build depends for
g++-7 in Bio-Linux, which is based on Ubuntu 14.04 (Trusty). It is
simple to build these packages from source under Ubuntu 14.04 if the
Ubuntu 'tools' PPA is available. I guess the situation is common for
backports, but I don't know what Debian-Med policy is about it.

Thanks for your advice,
