Absolutely. I wasn't proposing that as a patch to be merged in, rather
I'm just thinking out in the open and also because I can't keep up with
discussion I wanted to show I am still thinking about this offline.
just want to mention that this style of solution is probably wrong for
C++. The problem with C++ is that, depending on package build
ordering, packages may end up linking with multiple stdc++ libraries
(and including different c++ includes) from different compilers.
The current GCC_REQD behaviour avoids this problem (at a hefty cost).
Interesting, because my test case for trying out changes is
Taskwarrior which is C++. Although I don't think that last patch was
"correct" I don't understand the problem with C++. Perhaps Taskwarrior
isn't complicated enough for me to come across these issues? I thought
by letting GCC_REQD do it's thing and only afterwards overriding it
I'd be ok?
Anyway, I'll start having a go at PKGSRC_GCC_MIN next.
