Summary: make returns unsupported gcc version
GCC >4.3 allows compiling with the --with-pkgversion option (which can be anything) which in turn makes the ver_linux function report all sorts of garbage when using the --version option. Using -dumpversion to obtain the correct gcc version will always work.
