Fwd: [MacPorts] #51724: compilers-1.0: default to gcc6

Hi all,

Ryan has proposed moving to gcc6 as the standard default version of the GCC
compiler, which would be done in the compilers portgroup. It sounds like a
good idea to me. Does anyone see a problem with that with their ports that
use the compilers portgroup? (If so, the default can always be overridden
in individual Portfiles.)

Comment (by mf2k@…):

 I switched to gcc6 for my ports and everything appears to work. However, I
 believe such a change should be brought up on the dev list to make sure
 that no one sees a problem with this.
