In Lib/distutils/, get_version() tries to parse the output of shell commands to check for the gcc version. gcc-7 has changed the behavior of the flag -dumpversion to only show the major version number. This prevents the regex string RE_VERSION from parsing the version number from the shell output.

The issue was encountered when trying to install a third-party module to python3.6 on Ubuntu 18.04
