GCC5 is the recently released new version of the Linux compiler. A vast number of packages need to be rebuilt to be compatible. This must be the biggest transition I have seen in my time of using Linux. Debian Sid and siduction users are having to hold off on upgrades presently, and probably for months.

How are other rolling-release distros handling this?

Um. we got that on Arch a long while back:

core/gcc 5.2.0-2 (base-devel)

The GNU Compiler Collection - C and C++ frontends

Finding it hard to believe Debian development would be so far behind Arch, I had to delve into this further. I don't understand much of this but it seems GCC5 was released with dual ABI compatibility and packages could be built using either. I think the current Debian transition is to rebuild all packages to use the new ABI.
