At this point in time we should probably just make this more explicit.
Rip out gcc48 and earlier, and convert the GCC_REQD 2.x/3.x stuff into
a "could not find host compiler" error.
(I have no problem with the 'needing gcc3 is a sign of very bad things' notion.)
I think it would be good to avoid breaking pkgsrc on systems that are
really old but not quite ancient. I draw the line at netbsd-5 which has
gcc 4.1. Yes, that's really crufty, but a lot of things build, and
while pkgsrc does not "support" such a system, I'd like to avoid moving
it to "completely fails".
"Versions of GCC prior to 11 also allow bootstrapping with an ISO C++98

It's why I proposed deleting all the priors and reimporting 4.7, but
not even 4.7 should be necessary with netbsd-5, since the compiler has
