That does not belong in the NEWS file at all. 99.999% of people browsing the
NEWS file don't care about the compiler used, even less about the minimum
This normally belongs in the INSTALL file, but even then, most people who do
build won't read that. They'll run the configure script, and possibly read wiki
pages. This needs to be checked by configure, as Marvin said.
