Something along the lines...

-   * GCC 6.2 or newer
+   * GCC 6.2 or newer  (For some architectures specific later versions needed)

-     GCC 6.2 or higher is required.  In general it is recommended to use
-     the newest version of the compiler that is known to work for
+     GCC 6.2 or higher is required. ARC architecture needs gcc 8.2 or later.
+     In general it is recommended to use the newest version of the compiler
