The third parameter may be a text as in this example, but it may also
be an expanded variable or a macro.

+ cc-fullversion
+ cc-fullversion is useful when the exact version of gcc is needed.
+ One typical use-case is when a specific GCC version is broken.
+ cc-fullversion points out a more specific version than cc-version does.
+
+ Example:
+ #arch/powerpc/Makefile
+ $(Q)if test "$(call cc-fullversion)" = "040200" ; then \
+ echo -n '*** GCC-4.2.0 cannot compile the 64-bit powerpc ' ; \
+ false ; \
+ fi
+
+ In this example for a specific GCC version the build will error out explaining
+ to the user why it stops.
