on my PowerMac dual-G4 about a week of compilation, given the time to 
build gcc8...

But I understand we always build "latest available" (currently gcc13).. 
but I don't understand the chain.

We need a newer library. I agree with you that having all in-between 
version is nice but too much of a compile burden!

I have following ideas:

1) not jump to gcc13, but "just" to gcc8, gcc10 or whatever. Bandaid.. 
until we decide to raise the bar more!
2) do what you propose is gcc7 - gcc13
3) a "good sense" of some between versions. I propose even versions or a 
subselection of them.

I propose 3) but an fine with 2... let's just update!
