FWIW back in the kde-4.6 era gentoo set the minimum required gcc version 
for kde to gcc-4.4 (bug in kdegames at that point, since fixed upstream 
as the BSDs needed it as they were running older gcc), but 4.4's was 
fine, .  Maybe it'll end up needing bumped again. <shrug>

It is a bit difficult to see if gentoo has any related bugs or patches, 
since they've split kdepim into the individual packages, several of which 
mention the messagecomposer dir, so I don't know which package to search 
for bugs or patches.

Meanwhile, thanks for the gcc version numbers.  I'm not so frustrated 
now! =:^)
