as discussed on FreeNode #libreoffice-dev afterwards:

> Oct 11 16:58:21 <sberg>	cloph, re GCC version, e.g. today's <https://ci.libreoffice.org/job/lo_tb_master_linux/30783/> appears to still be done with GCC 4.8?  (seeing "export GCC_VERSION=408" in <https://ci.libreoffice.org/job/lo_tb_master_linux/30783/console>)

> Oct 11 17:05:30 <cloph>	oh, and I didn't check whether gperf 3.0.4 is proper (seems it is not, still std=gnu++14)

(the last comment is re 
"Re: Compiler baselines": "Also saw that on CentOS 6 
gperf-3.0.3-9.1.el6.x86_64 is too old, still
emitting register keywords in C++ mode, so that our configure.ac falls
back to using -std=gnu++14 instead of -std=gnu++17.  So the relevant
machines would also need a newer gperf (e.g., built from
gperf-3.1.tar.gz sources and passed into the LO build via a GPERF=...
line in autogen.input).")
