> So far we got away rather well with only implementing a more or less sane subset of gcc extensions even if our GNUC_MINOR suggests that we support all of them up to gcc 4.2 (including __builtin_apply and nested functions). So now thanks to the piece of software glibc is we're stuck at gcc 4.2 even though our subset of extensions expands greatly beyond that.

What version of glibc do we have to support? It does look like the
current maintainers are more reasonable, so if the really bad parts
were fixed we   might be able to bump GNUC_MINOR one day.

Would it be worth it trying to bump it to only 4.3 for now?
