I'm totally clueless when it comes to Linux toolchains. But I don't
think that this should be passed to cmake. Instead, the operating
system should be configured so that the commands "gcc" and "g++" will
use the newer version. Otherwise, people who build with CMake are
going to be pigeonholed to a specific gcc version? That doesn't seem
like the right thing to do.
