 I think it's good to be conservative here and not switching to GCC 9.1
 right away. It seems using GCC 8.3.0 is a decent solution for our Tor
 Browser 9. `bug_25930_v3`(https://gitweb.torproject.org/user/gk/tor-
 has the proposed fix. Note: I am leaving mingw-w64/gcc untouched for now.
 All things seem to build fine, just our spec hack for Firefox is breaking.
 But that should get fixed by mingw-w64/clang anyway, so we bump the GCC
 part for mingw-w64/gcc after we switched Firefox to mingw-w64/clang
