suggestion to add compiler version info to 'infoline'

OK, i plead guilty, this is a thinly disguised / modified double post: http://chdk.setepontos.com/index.php/topic,2500.msg25791.html#msg25791  :haha
but since i got no reaction, here goes:

while working on GCC 4.3.2 support for CHDK-Shell i played a bit with the Makefile infoline, and i think it might be usefull to include this in trunk in the future (suggested addition in bold)

Quote
# at lines 55/56 in Makefile @ trunk 688
infoline:
   @echo "**** GCC $(GCC_VERSION) : BUILDING CHDK-$(VER), #$(BUILD_NUMBER) FOR $(PLATFORM)-$(PLATFORMSUB)"

... no rocket science, but should show the compiler version used on screen and in log files,
    this is usefull if you use more than one devkit

PS In fact don't need this anymore for CHDK-Shell - i'm using 'echo [%TIME%][%DATE%] > file, followed by
'arm-elf-gcc -v 2>> file' to stamp my log & dump files with both time and full compiler info - but i still feel that
it could be useful for others - and IMHO a compiler log worthy of it's name should contain this info ...

PS2: I also still feel the thread quoted above should be moved to a better suited board ... i always have to
        look for it in my own posts   :D

you know how it is whim, feature requests / bug reports should be added to the official place, namely the mantis server :D
also, a diff is always better than just showing the changes. i know, you only changed one line ;)
adding things to the bugtracker will keep them from being forgotten :) i dont know when i will be able to add the changes.

@phox

"it's not a bug, it's a feature" .... :lol

wim

edit: and, as I already mentioned just wanted to see if anybody likes the idea ...
it's probably some kind of recycling hangup "hmm, a new variable - what else
useful can we do with it ?"
