I was installing binutils, avr-libc and gcc core on a new linux and noticed that for the latest avr-libc, i.e. today, that is 1.6.8 , the README doc says that preferred gcc version is latest 3.4.x .
Today, latest gcc is 4.5.0, and winAVR uses 4.3.3 and binutils 2.19
Question is, for which higher gcc version should the avr-libc be safe to use with when avr-libc is promoting version 3.4.x. and winavr is already violating this with success. I guess I can alter the configure file to let it accept current installed version of gcc but I would like to know the possible consequences...
Case is, I did offcourse try to use it with latest gcc version 4.5.0, which installed fine (after installing missed libs) using --target=avr as an option.
But when installing avr-libc version 1.6.8 it complains about wrong gcc version.
