This does not belong in mk.conf; see comment in mk/

#       A list of version numbers used to determine the minimum
#       version of GCC required by a package.  This value should only
#       be appended to by a package Makefile.

You want USE_PKGSRC_GCC instead:

#       Force using the appropriate version of GCC from pkgsrc based on
#       GCC_REQD instead of the native compiler.  Should only be set in
#       /etc/mk.conf.

which, as a minimum, ias already known to be gcc3.
