[New-bugs-announce] [issue12258] Clean up bytes I/O in get_compiler_versions

New submission from Éric Araujo <merwok at netwok.org>:

get_compiler_versions uses string regexes to match bytes streams returned by subprocess.  The test did not catch this because they mock subprocess output with strings in self._exes.

We have to decide whether we propagate the bytes object up (and fix two regexes, a comparison and the tests), or to decode the subprocess output to strings.
