PCSX2 compile with GCC-8 or -7

Hey guys, I am trying to figure out how to compile PCSX2 with an older GCC. It doesn't compile with GCC9, it segfaults which is a known issue. currently no fixes on the AUR for it.

I tried to do (I tried CC=/usr/bin/gcc-8 only at first)
Code: [Select]
CC=/usr/bin/gcc-8 \
CXX=/usr/bin/gcc-8 \
but that doesn't work, it gives me:

Code: [Select]

-- The C compiler identification is GNU 8.3.0
-- The CXX compiler identification is GNU 8.3.0
-- Check for working C compiler: /usr/bin/gcc-8
-- Check for working C compiler: /usr/bin/gcc-8 -- broken

and yes I have googled this! I'm not really sure why its failing still though. I know I am doing something wrong, but how is the question. I have tried different variations of CC= CXX= but maybe I haven't come upon the right ones

I had a similar error trying to build bluez-ps3 with gcc-5, it meant the gcc binary was too old compared to the installed version of binutils which supplies the ld command, downgrading binutils might fix it.
But the current advice from the PCSX2 devs themselves is to patch gcc 9 :
https://github.com/PCSX2/pcsx2/commit/43981f5981b0c5578af2243b3db26f0cdb1a1bbd

Or possibly you could try modifying the PKGBUILD to build with clang / llvm as that is supposedly supported by PCSX2 as well.

No, after a few tries it still fails to build with clang :

Is gcc8-libs installed?

Yes Nous, gcc8-libs is installed...
and if clang don't work, then I'm really lost, oh well... How do we patch GCC9? O_o
