gcc410: rename to gcc5

Keywords: Cc: cooljeanius (Eric Gallager)
Port: gcc410 gcc5

Description

Following the new gcc version numbering announcement, the gcc410 port will need to be renamed gcc5 to continue with updates. A stub gcc410 port should be left for one year marked as replaced_by gcc5 to help existing users of gcc410 upgrade cleanly.

I created the initial gcc410 port (from your gcc49 port), and if you like I can work on this renaming situation as well.

I was actually thinking about renaming all the GCC ports to “gcc-X.Y” for consistency with the Clang ports. I haven’t fleshed out the details yet; the main sticking point is the fact that base currently expects the current “gccXY” format when selecting compilers. I’m not quite sure how to deal with that.

Let's discuss that on the macports-dev mailing list first. This ticket is just about updating this one port.
