It makes some sense to document which version was tested for in-tree
builds (for each gcc release), and recommend the same for users also
doing in-tree builds. But shouldn't using the installed versions of
these libraries be the common case? And as long as gcc doesn't depend on
undocumented features, using the latest version should give fewer
problems than using some ancient one.
