Since GCC comes with a testsuite that runs for quite a long time and
that test suite also contains some known failures, we should run the
testsuite of GCC whenever the compiler is changed to ensure a high
The package is now split into multiple parts, gcc$VER,
gcc$VER-testresults and libffi$VER (plus various spec files for
cross and icecream cross compilers). The testsuite is run from
gcc$VER-testresults, a dummy package with the testresults, gcc$VER-testresults,
is generated from it which contains testing logfiles and summary.
Before checking in a new compiler, please do the following steps as QA

- Run mbuild for all archs for at least the gcc$VER and the gcc$VER-testresults
- When mbuild is finished, call
