Debian sid has 1.5.3 fwiw, so I assume Debian 9 will have that too. Not sure if we can get it into Debian 8, I'm not intimately familiar with the policy. If OTOH GCC-6 requires it then that's probably a strong argument to let it bubble down to Debian 8 if need be.
Widespread other buildsystems should pose no problem, dunno about the big non-debian distros in this respect.
