I have just updated to gcc-4.7 & g++4.7:

chan@Ubuntu:~$ sudo apt-get install gcc-4.7
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
gcc-4.7 is already the newest version.
The following packages were automatically installed and are no longer required:
  linux-headers-3.2.0-24 linux-headers-3.2.0-24-generic-pae
Use 'apt-get autoremove' to remove them.

but when I run

gcc -v

It showed

chan@Ubuntu:~$ g++ -v
Using built-in specs.
