Unused in the GCC package, AVR support was moved to a separate package at some point in time.
I did that move when an old compiler was the better choice. Should we go back into the main GCC package if we find that now a current GCC is a good choice? (Chances are high that 4.8 is an excellent avr compiler, I am told...)
Seems, I am able to compile devel:gcc/gcc48 for avr with minimal changes, but some cleanups are still required.
If you are happy with it just do a submitrequest - I'll probably manually integrate it doing my share of cleanups.
As for me, regarding gcc version, if something works poorly it should be reported to upstream maintainers instead of sitting on old out-dated version.
