 I currently run into GCC_REQD=3D4.4 in multimedia/libvpx because of =
 pkg/48508 ...
 as a dependency of editors/emacs (in an experiment for RHEL5).
 Since I dislike building pkgsrc gcc=92s without good reason (sse3 for a =
 emacs isn=92t), and I don=92t see any option - I disabled the =
 requirement and it
 seems to me multimedia/libvpx builds fine.
 For Solaris I recommend to have a look how SmartOS has solved the issue =
 they build with a dedicated gcc4.7 which can be separated between build- =
 runtime parts) and for all other OS I strongly disagree to enable GCC =
 over all.
 I have no clue how it behaves when this package encounters an =
 environment with
 clang, xlc, acc or SunPro ...
 Anyway - blind adding new requirements is IMHO a mistake.
