Switch default GCC to 4.8 on s390x

Hi all,

The s390x architecture is still using GCC 4.6 as the default compiler, 
while most other architectures have already switched to GCC 4.8. It
starts to cause problem for building packages: some packages need 
C11 features to be compiled, while some others assume the default
compiler is already GCC 4.8 (in that case they are actually buggy). It
would also help having the same default version of GCC than for GCJ, GDC

I therefore propose to switch the default compiler on s390x to GCC 4.8
by default. It is already used to build the kernel without any known

Any comments or opinion on that?

Best regards,
