Is there a way to automatically make gcc color its output?
I am looking to avoid an alias as the the command is commonly used in makefiles (where it will not be used).
Is there an easy way to do this?
Note: this does require gcc/g++ 4.9, which is currently available via svn. I am willing to recompile if the change is something small (in a config file or something).
I know that the GCC_COLOR environment variable is used, but I am not sure how to set it, or what to set it to.
