      In the 3.4 branch, in docs/building.md the instructions state that:

      To build MongoDB, you will need:
      
      * A modern C++ compiler. One of the following is required.
          * GCC 4.8.2 or newer
          * Clang 3.4 (or Apple XCode 5.1.1 Clang) or newer
          * Visual Studio 2013 Update 2 or newer
      

      which is out of date since according to the SConscript:

      compiler_minimum_string = "GCC 5.3.0"
      

      is required.
