It is set with --with-pkgversion but it is only for gdc.
But this only works as you build gdc and gcc separately. I.e. for gdc, you build gcc+gdc, then throw away everything but gdc related executables. Then you compile gcc with different --with-pkgversion for the gcc package. However, this has the problem that your gcc executable now does not properly forward .d files to gdc as that build did not have --enable- languages=d. The supported way to do this is build all gcc based compilers at once. But then you can't use --with-pkgversion as it will apply to all compilers. -- Johannes
