Compile Unreal with gcc and system STL for linux
I am trying to compile Unreal with gcc and system STL(not the unreal provided STL i.e UNREAL STL). I only have to support for Linux:

Could you tell a bit more what is the problem are you trying to solve?
BTW, there's no "Unreal STL", you are perhaps referring to libc++ bundled with the engine. You can switch to default libstdc++ by setting an environment variable UE4_LINUX_USE_LIBCXX to 0. However before doing that - what is the problem that is causing you to consider that?
Compiling with gcc is harder. UBT still contains remnants of gcc support, but we have not attempted it in quite a while. However, I have heard of licensees who were able to compile the engine with gcc, albeit with rather extensive changes to the code base.
