[dev] C, gcc and armv8

Just to raise awareness on this issue:

  - gcc is now c++98 boot-strapable only.
  - The last C boostrapable gcc is gcc 4.7.x.
  - armv8 (64bits, raspberry 3) support is only in lastest gcc (i.e. _not_ in gcc 4.7.x)

It means you cannot natively compile gcc on armv8 from a basic C compiler, for instance tcc, anymore.

That loop is closed.

More and more c++ applications out there now requires a c++14 compiler (mame,
inkscape, soon gecko? webkit?), reasonnably only a recent gcc (_not_ gcc 4.7.x) can compile them properly.
And wait for c++17...
That loop is almost closed now.
