Re: [opensuse-buildservice] Newer compilers for older versions of RHEL (etc.)

Does anyone have any ideas for how to get a newer compiler into the build?

I followed simotek's suggestion from SuperUser[1] and branched the gcc47
package into my own project, but I just couldn't convince it to build
properly on RHEL 5/6 due to unresolvable dependencies[2], possibly because
of the different structure of openSUSE's base system.

Ideally we could just pull the packages from but I understand
that might be hard to make work.

They would install the compiler in /opt which means you have to mess around
with specfiles.
(And in any case, you would want the current devtools-4.)
