I probably didn't convey it clearly enough in my email, my primary concern
is that all support for Ada will be completely removed. Porting dsynth
would surely be a better option than losing synth completely, I agree. Your
second suggestion would be the best solution I think. OpenBSD had an even
newer GCC (10) ported recently[1]. As I said, I currently don't have enough
time to try and port a newer GCC myself, but keeping gcc6-aux alive could
be a stopgap measure.
