We (Fedora) have blender 2.79b failing to build from source with GCC 9 in 
Fedora 30 and Rawhide.

See log: https://kojipkgs.fedoraproject.org/work/tasks/9457/33889457/build.log

After investigation, this is caused by a change in GCC 9 as noted in the 
"Porting to GCC 9" page:

>OpenMP data sharing

>GCC releases before 9 were implementing an OpenMP 3.1 data sharing rule that 
>const qualified variables without mutable member are predetermined shared, 
>but as an exception may be specified in the firstprivate clause. OpenMP 4.0 
>dropped this rule, but in the hope that the incompatible change will be 
>reverted GCC kept implementing the previous behavior. Now that for OpenMP 5.0 
>it has been confirmed this is not going to change, GCC 9 started implementing 
>the OpenMP 4.0 and later behavior. When not using default clause or when 
>using default(shared), this makes no difference, but if using default(none), 
>previously the choice was not specify the const qualified variables on the 
>construct at all, or specify in firstprivate clause. In GCC 9 as well as for 
>OpenMP 4.0 compliance, those variables need to be specified on constructs in 
>which they are used, either in shared or in firstprivate clause. Specifying 
>them in firstprivate clause is one way to achieve compatibility with both 
>older GCC versions and GCC 9, another option is to drop the default(none) 
>clause. In C++, const variables with constant initializers which are not odr-
>used in the region, but replaced with their constant initializer are not 
>considered to be referenced in the region for default(none) purposes. 


This patch solves the build failure by dropping the default(none) clause in 

Here's a link to a successful build with this patch applied:
