Nice use of deprecated-package. :-)

About discoverability (guix search gcc) there is still 2 issues:

 1. libgccjit inherits from gcc-9 but the synopsis/description is not updated.
 2. gccgo uses custom-gcc and so reuse the same synopsis/description.

The #1 is easy to fix -- I can send a patch which precises the
synopsis/description of libgccjit.

What is the best for #2?  Add 2 optional arguments to 'custom-gcc'
(synopsis and description)?  Other?

Last, it is unfortunate that the package gccmakedep has the exact same
number of occurence of the term 'gcc' but it is not an issue.
