The use of an aged Linux distribution is a deliberate choice.

It is indeed the easiest way to have Linux binaries target a not too
recent version of libc, which in turn allows you to offer
compatibility with almost every existing Linux distribution currently
on the market.
The approach has been verified with the Linux Standard Base
Application Checker

And I went thought the trouble of installing a reasonably recent
version of gcc (4.8.1).

Can you please point out to a specific rock where my distribution
choice turns out to be an issue?
