Default News item for hardened profile about gcc.

Hi

Was thinking to post a news item for the hardened profile about the new GCC
4.4.4-r2 that have been stabled on x86 and amd64.

Hardened at gentoo.org

You may have noticed that GCC 4.4.4-r2 has gone stable on x86 and
amd64. The other archs will follow later. We have enable SSP support
by default on this and on newer versions for arches where it is
supported, namely on x86, amd64, ppc, ppc64 and arm. The previous
version GCC 4.3.4 had SSP, but it was not enabled by default.
Older gcc's like 3.X versions will be obsoleted and we will not fix
any bugs that work on GCC-4.4.4-r2 or newer, but fail with gcc 3.X.

I'd suggest updating it to

Display-If-Installed: <sys-devel/gcc-4.4

GCC 4.4.4-r2 is now stable (on x86 and amd64 as of 2010-10-24, other
architectures will follow later). Starting from this version, SSP
support is enabled by default for the architectures it is supported on
(namely x86, amd64, ppc, ppc64 and arm). Previously, GCC 4.3.4 had SSP
support but it was not enabled by default.

Older GCC versions, such as the GCC 3.x series will be obsoleted;
problems arising on those versions, but not applying to GCC 4.4.4-r2
will not be fixed, so please update to the new version.
