Is it ok to require gcc 4.9 (3 years old) or later to build GNAT ?

The newest Ada compiler available for SLE11 is 4.8.

Various people still use 4.4 or even 4.1 as bootstrap compilers.
While 3 years old requirement is way better than the Rust nonsense (only
support bootstrap with 6 weeks older Rust and not older), it is still not
good enough for GCC IMHO.

I still see a lot of people using CentOS/RHEL 6 which has
gcc 4.4.7. This is particularly true of large organizations.

What does CentOS/RHEL 7 have for gcc?

What would be the procedure to get a recent GNAT on these
distributions?  For RTEMS, we use very recent (6.3.0) gcc
for our cross tools but usually don't have to worry about
updating the native compiler. CentOS 6 is not a problem
to build up to date cross tools on currently.
