If we update, might as well get something that more people care about.  1.5.3 is in ubuntu LTS 16.04 and Fedora 24, so it's been around awhile.  SUSU is said to be using 1.6, in the post 1.4.4 systems.  People stated they want 1.5.2 and 1.5.3, so, I'm inclined to say, let's shoot for 1.5.3 when we do update.

So.. let me ping that, again, now that another year has passed :)

PS: Recap: was
later applied as;a=commit;h=5481f29161477520c691d525653323b82fa47ad7
and was part of the dejagnu-1.5.2 release from 2015. Jonathan requires
1.5.3 for libstdc++ testing.
The libdirs fix would allow us to remove the 150 occurrences of the
load_gcc_lib hack, refer to the patch to the fortran list back then.
AFAIR this is still not fixed: +# BUG: gcc-dg calls
gcc-set-multilib-library-path but does not load gcc-defs!

debian-stable (i think 9 ATM), Ubuntu LTS ship versions recent enough
to contain both fixes. Commercial distros seem to ship fixed versions,
