I'm seeing this bug in 2.7.9. The reason seems to be that the version detection doesn't work...

This snippet:

  out = os.popen(gcc_exe + ' -dumpversion', 'r')
  out_string =

returns an empty out_string, causing gcc_version = None < '4'

Maybe the < '4' check could be restructured to see None as "probably modern" instead of "probably very out of date" ?
