My runners use gcc 4.4(.2) (in gnu++0x mode) on QNX, and it's useful to be
able to compare to the same compiler running on Linux. I'm sure it's the
same for other non-Linux environments such as MinGW. Currently there are
other runners that match my compiler configuration better than yours do, but
you get the idea.
