People *cannot* read, until you _force_ them.

Without this check, there will be much more people reporting bugs,
wasting time of developers and readers, until it is discovered, this bug
was caused by the faulty gcc.

So, with this check, you force the user to read and then he will see, if
he wants to try with his compiler or use a different one.

Believe me: Todays users don't read. Never. Maybe if hell freezes over.
