I don't think we have an official list of recommended compilers and
their versions per se.  But normally we suggest whatever compiler your
platform of choice ships with or recommends.

Yeah, use of gcc only macros is not a good way to go, as we also build
LibreOffice with Visual Studio compilers.  Of course, if you are using
them only for debugging with your local build, then you're free to use
whatever suits your need.
