Consider that I found this annoying, and I'm quite experienced building Octave, GCC, and many other tools. My experience is that when most people hit failures like this, they just give up and curse the whole experience. It does NOT encourage them to upgrade their compiler or OS.
Further, if you rely on the latest features of the latest versions of the tools you use, you are also likely to make things more difficult on yourself. What happens when those latest features have critical bugs but you can't build with older versions of the tools?
I'd really prefer to be conservative about what new compiler features we require to build Octave.
