Two remarks - devtoolset-7 only seems to be available for x86_64, so
unless we invest some effort to get cross builds to work on linux (I
expect externals to be the real pain point here), this means
abandoning 32bit linux.

One of the upsides to not only update toolchain, but the entire
baseline builders (e.g. to CentOS 7) would be KF5 ('KDE5') support.
