It wouldn't be accurate for Mac OS, Windows, FreeBSD, other Linux
distributions, as well as other versions of GCC.

Generally, in my experience, such attempts are mostly futile: if someone
skips reading README/INSTALL file (where all of this is discussed), they
will just as well skip reading your error message with an excuse of it
being too long, not clear enough, or confusing.
