The FreeBSD team is working toward removing the last dependencies on the GNU Compiler Collection (GCC) from the base operating system. Most of the tasks previously performed by GCC are now handled by the Clang compiler and the FreeBSD developers want to finish the transition before FreeBSD 13 is released. "The basic notion is that it's long past time to have a firm plan for EOL GCC 4.2.1 in the tree. There is ample external toolchain support today for platforms that need it to build images, though that integration with buildworld could use some more polish. It's now completely sufficient to move to the next phase of removing GCC 4.2.1 from the tree." The GNU compiler will still be available as a package users can add to the system post-install. Further details can be found in Warner Losh's mailing list post.
