I wouldn't have too high hopes - last time I tried a new gcc on vax it
didn't build at all. But good if somebody else is doing fixes there now.

We are at 6.4 in -current and 5.5 in netbsd-8 (for all architectures).

mrg is planing to update to the 7.x sometime in -current.

Is there an easy way to spot vax specific changes that happened in newer
gccs upstream? Might be worth to try and port them, but the github
log viewer is not a good tool for that ;-)
