I moved GCC from 2.64 to 2.69 in 2018 (building on Simon Marchi's 
implementation of the same move for binutils + GDB - I expect it would 
have been much more work without his having already done the changes to 
the shared files and shown the sorts of changes most commonly needed 
outside the shared files and directories).
