On my Debian, I see 4.8 and 4.9 are available.

However, I know of no systems where every released version of GCC is
available (at least starting with 4.1.2).

Also I expect those different versions are all built using the single
glibc used by the distro?  I would like to vary glibc as well, so I can
benchmark pthread locking mechanisms across glibc versions.
