OK thanks. I found that, but figured it wasn't official so didn't
want to use it.

It this one of those "RH is useless without EPEL" type things
where everyone just installs it anyway? Like the first thing you
did after installing Solairs was slap CSW on so the system felt
sane (memories from 10 years ago; I never install Solaris now

CentOS 7, gcc 4.8.5. *sigh*

Maybe it should just say "yum install debian" and the world would
be a better place.

What do people do? Is there a recent gcc in EPEL? I think on
Scientific Linux I had to install devtoolset-3 or something like
that (it was a few weeks ago), but that doesn't seem to be in
CentOS so I guess it was a SL addon.

Hmm, RH seems to have clang. Maybe the spec file should just use
that instead.
