In order to get around this issue, we build the packages <= v6.x for Debian Wheezy with [clang-3.4](http://clang.llvm.org/). Ubuntu Precise ships with [clang-3.4](http://clang.llvm.org) available, so we use that instead of GCC.

The current expectation for v7.x of Node is that going forward, it will require use of even newer parts of the C++ standard. This will in turn require a compiler newer than both the `gcc` that ships on these distributions and `clang-3.4`. For this reason, we do not support Wheezy or Precise on version 7.x of Node.
