Well using gcc-d works (at least autogen.sh finds & accepts it), however
another problem then arises - that 14.2's gperf-3.0.4 as also too old. I
can imagine arranging a special version of gperf just to compile
LO-6.3.x and then finding that some other tool is also too old etc.,
etc., so I'll just leave LibreOffice at 6.2.x.
