If you install a later version of gcc it won't automatically get used
because the port will use the base-system version. 

I've seen this warning previously and it's never caused a noticeable
problem for me. If it were serious, I imagine the maintainer would have
configured it to use a minimum gcc port version.

If it bothers you, the most sensible thing would be to upgrade to 7.1
when it's released
