That is still weird: the native compiler on your system is normally
called "gcc", while the compiler in your toolchain is generally named
x86_64-linux-gcc or some variation on that.

Even though your patch is definitely correct, I'd like to understand
how you fall into this situation. Indeed, I'm pretty sure several other
host packages might be affected, and if this is a valid situation, we
should see if there's a way to test it in our autobuilders.

I don't think there is such a limitation. This patchwork instance is
not always super stable, yesterday we had 500 errors for a few moments
for example. If you have issues, we can contact the admins of the
instance and see if they can have a look.
