So lets start with, for x86 whatever the older of the versions on the two
boxes you refer to above and for ARM gcc 4.8 and binutils 2.24, which
corresponds to what I happen to use for both arm32 and arm64 in my
development environment.

Those are IMHO reasonable starting points but obviously they aren't set in
stone and can be easily adjusted later if necessary.
