Does anyone know of a way to load GCC 7 or later onto Ubuntu 16.04 for

If GCC 7 were in the Ubuntu Xenial repo, I know I could pull it in by
adding a version qualifier to my Build-depends line in my .dsc file.
However, the latest version of GCC in the Xenial repos is version 5.

external repository during the build process.

Any advice would be appreciated!

You cannot do this. If you want GCC 7 on Ubuntu 16.04 in OBS, you'll
need to import the GCC 7 source packages that your repo used so OBS
can build it and make it available as inputs for other packages to
