Thank you for proposing this, Yuri!

Can you give me a week or two, please?

I'm looking into possibly removingg USE_GCC=any completely which would
obsolete the need for such a warning in portlint.

    math/gismo: Replace USE_GCC=any with USE_GCC=yes

    Since commit 96c17633d90386b5bcf8637bcba99a677184db85 in May 2021
    USE_GCC=any is just an old (and odd) way of writing USE_GCC=yes
    and was deprecated even before. Replace it with USE_GCC=yes.

This is the last port in the tree where USE_GCC=any sneaked in again.

Next I'll strengthen the documentation in Mk/bsd.gcc.mk and a little
later I'll remove USE_GCC=any to begin with (which means portlint does
not need to concern itself about warning about it).

I'll wait for the next quarterly branch (in about two weeks) and plan
on removing support for USE_GCC=any then.

That way conservative users, in particular those who have out of tree 
ports have another quarter to adjust, and of course I'll make the change
only after ensuring no new instances of USE_GCC=any have appeared in the

    Mk/bsd.gcc.mk: Remove USE_GCC=any

    We have recommended against USE_GCC=any for a while, and as of more
    recently it was completely equivalent to USE_GCC=yes.

    With (ancient versions of) GCC hardly available in the base system
    of FreeBSD systems at this point, there's unlikely to be a use case
    to reintroduce it, so remove the few remaining traces.

As promised: USE_GCC=any is now a thing of the past.

Thanks for pointing out the portlint enhancement which ultimately pushed
its removal. :)
