While it seems that higher may be better I prefer my project to be save. Won't it be a hassle to compile all these different packages every time?
Default is still gcc-5.2.0 for fbc-1.07.1, correct; same as fbc-1.07.0 and several earlier versions of fbc. Intent is to provide a few new options for gcc version. And with the efforts from srvaldez, deltatho, and PaulSquires, they are providing additional options for gcc version as well. For now keeping the reasonably stable and well known base of gcc-5.2.0, and my hope is that we can select and move to a newer gcc version for the 1.08.0 release.
If you don't know or don't care about gcc version, then sticking with default gcc-5.2.0 is fine. When we move to a new default version, then I would recommend that one. True, it is a bit of a hassle to package for so many tool chains. The benefit though is that we are checking that fbc works with so many tool chains.
