Slackware64 -current (multilib) -- Wrong GCC version


I'm pretty sure this is solved but couldn't find.

So problem is when I try to create Slackware package from virtualbox which I got from slackuilds, I get this error:

** gcc version 4.8.0 found, expected gcc 3.x with x>1 or gcc 4.x with 0<x<8!
Very self explanatory but I'm not sure what should I do, install older gcc version? Not sure if I should do that since I have multilib installed.

I think you need to download the updated version of VirtualBox in order to compile it with recent GCC version

Just unpack tarball, change in `configure` file line
'-o \( $cc_maj -eq 4 -a $cc_min -gt 7 \)' to '-o \( $cc_maj -eq 4 -a $cc_min -gt 8 \)' (in VirtualBox-4.2.12 it is in 417 line)
and pack it again. After that run virtualbox.SlackBuild.
I have today this problem too under Slackware-current x64_86 Multilib and after changing value it runs.

p.s. Sorry for my poor english - it isn't my native language.
