GCC_DEFAULT_VERSION is set to 4.6 in ports/Mk/bsd.gcc.mk Unlike some other default versions, it isn't setup to be able to be overridden from make.conf As Mark mentioned, some applications have a requirement for a specific version of gcc, while others will specify a minimum version (USE_GCC=4.7+) This is why you end up needing all of those versions. You may be able to reduce some of the fragmentation by installing the highest version first, then any app that can use that will, and only those requiring a specific version will pull those in. The root issue is that some apps will just refuse to compile on newer versions of GCC -- Allan Jude _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-current To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-current-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
