For reference, about the invented GCC_VINTAGE:

I invented GCC_VINTAGE instead of directly referencing
GCC_DEFAULT everywhere because edk2 at times goes long
periods with being broken for building on newer gcc*'s
and port patching need not be easy/appropriate. (There
are multiple upstreams and such involved overall, for

GCC_VINTAGE allows editing one place to specify, say,
12 if 13 or later would be a problem but 12 is no longer
the default. This makes it easier to avoid sysutils/edk2
being a reason to delay GCC_DEFAULT updates in the future:
update GCC_VINTAGE instead.
