In current OOo source tree, detailed compiler version check is being done in
solenv/inc/tg_compv.mk and set to CCNUMVER. Compler version is also checked at
configure time but the detailed version number does not seem to be passed to the
I am implementing mingw port and considering to support different experimental
versions of mingw compilers. However, different versions of gcc compilers emit
warnings in different manners and I have to change default compiler switches between
versions. Unless, we have to face so many useless warnings or suppress many useful
warnings. So I have to check the compiler version in solenv/inc/wntgcci6.mk but
platform specific makefiles are included before solenv/inc/tg_compv.mk!
I wonder why can't we pass the compiler version from the configure script and would
like to have any suggestions.
