Can you please try this diff [1], which merges most of the stable/9 gcc
changes to stable/8?  I've ran it through a make universe, and the only
failure I got was with the amd64 XENHVM kernel:

amd64 XENHVM kernel failed, check _.amd64.XENHVM for deatils

but I don't know if this is an expected failure or not.  Tinderbox seems
to have other trouble with its stable/8 builds.  The actual error is:

In file included from sys/sys/param.h:86,
                 from sys/compat/ia32/ia32_genassym.c:6:
sys/sys/types.h:44:28: error: machine/endian.h: No such file or directory

I didn't test any ports yet, though.
