gcc-4.6 as the default compiler on sparc

Hi all,

Given nobody answered to the mail from Matthias Klose, the default gcc
on sparc is still the version 4.4, while 4.6 is the default on most
other architectures.

I haven't noticed any issues with gcc 4.6 on sparc (for example eglibc
builds fine, without testsuite regression), and a lot of generic
regressions from version 4.6.0 (like memory consumption) have been
fixed in 4.6.1.

I therefore propose to switch the default compiler on sparc to 4.6. Any
comments or opinion? If everybody agree, I'll open a bug about that.
