You are right, gcc 4.8.0 even not yet branched and maybe is to early but
next Fedora (19) will ship gcc 4.8.0 and we will begin a mass rebuild of
all packages on 2013-02-12 (not VB included) .

GCC 4.8 will be released on mid-March - mid-April (in regression bugfix
mode already) 

So I test if VB builds with gcc 4.8.0 and I'm writing to you to inform
that we have a bug accepted on gcc bugzilla. 

So I will wait to see if GCC team will fix that ;)
