GCC 4.8 is now the default on all x86 architectures, and on all ARM architectures (the latter confirmed by the Debian ARM porters). I did not get any feedback from other port maintainers, so unless this does change and port maintainers get involved with toolchain maintenance, the architectures staying at 4.6 or 4.7 shouldn't be considered for a successful release (re-)qualification. The Java and D frontends now default to 4.8 on all architectures, the Go frontend stays at 4.7 until 4.8 get the complete Go 1.1 support.
