 .. _the libstdc++ manual:
-  http://gcc.gnu.org/onlinedocs/gcc-4.7.3/libstdc++/manual/manual/status.html#status.iso.2011
+  http://gcc.gnu.org/onlinedocs/gcc-4.8.5/libstdc++/manual/manual/status.html#status.iso.2011
This should be 4.8.0

 **GCC 4.6.3 on ARM**: Miscompiles ``llvm-readobj`` at ``-O3``. A test failure
 in ``test/Object/readobj-shared-object.test`` is one symptom of the problem.
Chop this line, too... :)

-**Clang 3.0 with libstdc++ 4.7.x**: a few Linux distributions (Ubuntu 12.10,
-Fedora 17) have both Clang 3.0 and libstdc++ 4.7 in their repositories.  Clang
-3.0 does not implement a few builtins that are used in this library.  We
-recommend using the system GCC to compile LLVM and Clang in this case.
 **Clang 3.0 on Mageia 2**.  There's a packaging issue: Clang can not find at
 least some (``cxxabi.h``) libstdc++ headers.
And this, we specifically don't support 3.0.
