gcc 4.6 should work for all LSB versions.  There are, I believe, issues
relating to shared libraries were it's possible a gcc of the 4.5/4.6 era
might put in something incompatible in a header we've not found a way to
prevent.  Someone else would have to comment on that. I think it
was a fairly minor case.

LSB's C++ is based on that from gcc 4.1.   An uplift is on the calendar:
https://wiki.linuxfoundation.org/en/Uplift_Target   and
( although admittedly the two year old bug isn't very descriptive ).

I wouldn't necessarily be holding my breath over this one in
the near future, though.
