Default Bug#657962: gcc-defaults: Add gcc-plugin-dev?

Source: gcc-defaults
Version: 1.112
Severity: normal

Hello,

I have a package which would like to build a gcc plugin. I should
however not make it build-depend on a particular gcc-4.[567]-plugin-dev
package as the default version changes over time. Could gcc-defaults
also provide a gcc-plugin-dev package?

Samuel

Actually, thinking a bit more about it, I guess I actually have
to build my plugin several times, once for each supported gcc
version. So we'd need something similar to python, i.e. something
like gcc-all-plugin-dev, and a way to iterate over all supported gcc
versions.

Is this really needed? many plugins need modifications for different GCC
versions, and it should be easy to add such a "loop" or make magic to build for
different versions. There are not (yet) that many plugins for GCC.

My comments were before our discussion about a dpkg trigger to rebuild
the plugins automatically. I agree that we can't really blindly hope
that plugins can compile with newer versions.
