 My understanding is that in such a case, the above packages should be
 made to depend on "lang/gcc6-libs" so that the necessary library package
 is installed as a dependency on hosts updating via binary package.
 Any later GCC should work too, but how does one indicate that a package
 "gccX-libs" for any suitable "gccX" should be used instead of the one
 that corresponds to the minimum required?
 (The whole GCC_REQD framework still only looks at the compiler version
 in the host's base system and doesn't consider any that have already
 been installed through pkgsrc.)
