I'm working on the assumption that people will grab binaries from

Does this mean the gcc version will change? If you have hard information 
this, I'd appreciate the URL.

If the minimum gcc version for 10 or 11 is above 4.8.5 across all 
then I agree, but I don't have that information, so I figured I'd ask to 
cover all of the JDK versions, to be safe. 

Even if the gcc version does change, adding 4.8.5-specific code shouldn't 
break anything.

What do you think?
