configure for gcc 6.4.0 build on Fedora 27

Thu Jun 14 07:52:00 GMT 2018

FYI: this is my configure command:

../gcc_trunk/configure -v \
--build=x86_64-linux-gnu \
--host=x86_64-linux-gnu \
--target=x86_64-linux-gnu \
--disable-multilib \
--enable-checking=release \
--enable-languages=c,c++ \
--enable-lto \
--prefix=/usr/local/gcc-latest \

This way the compilers will be named "gcc-latest" and "g++-latest"
You can change this to your 6.4.0 version.
