This transition is part of an ongoing effort to deploy clang as the base OS compiler, on all appropriate architectures. License restrictions prevent newer versions of gcc from being deployed in the base OS.

The change also impacts package building and package deployment. Any -current users should see the July 29 update to the Following -current FAQ. I expect similar guidance will be included in the 6.2 Upgrade Guide.
