Re: GCC 7
Thanks, Tomás, for your email.
I should have written before that I don't want the GCC 7 to be a
system-wide compiler, along with libraries and some other dependencies.
I need GCC 7 to compile my own code (C++17) that I run. I don't need to
distribute the binaries.
Yes, GCC 7 is not in the backports, so it's not an option. There might
be some Debian packages with GCC 7, but I worry about making a
FrankenDebian, and the ensuing dependency and linking problems.
Thanks for pointing out pbuilder, I think I'll give it a try. I also
might want to try virtual containers, but it seems like an overkill.
I might later drop an email to the debian-gcc mailing list.

Could someone offer an advice on how to get a working GCC 7 on
Debian Stretch, without upgrading to Testing?
Backports would be a place to go. There seem to be others in your
(but I haven't seen an answer to this request in that mailing
Perhaps pinging debian-gcc list is a good idea.
Alternatively, if you just want to build for testing, some
pbuilder (chroot) setup might help, but then your program
might want to link to newer core libraries...
