The latest version of GCC in the Precise archives is 4.6.3. However, GCC 4.7 adds support for some newer C++11 features (like delegating constructors). Quantal's package archives have GCC 4.7.2 available.
Is there any way I can get GCC 4.7 installed on Precise? Better yet, is there an easy way to take a newer version of a package in one release and backport it to an older release?
