ci: fix GCC install in the Travis CI GCC OSX job
A few days ago Travis CI updated their existing OSX images, including the Homebrew database in the xcode10.1 OSX image that we use. Since then installing dependencies in the 'osx-gcc' job fails when it tries to link gcc@8: + brew link gcc@8 Error: No such keg: /usr/local/Cellar/gcc@8 GCC8 is still installed but not linked to '/usr/local' in the updated image, as it was before this update, but now we have to link it by running 'brew link gcc'. So let's do that then, and fall back to linking gcc@8 if it doesn't, just to be sure. Our builds on Azure Pipelines are unaffected by this issue. The OSX image over there doesn't contain the gcc@8 package, so we have to 'brew install' it, which already takes care of linking it to '/usr/local'. After that the 'brew link gcc' command added by this patch fails, but the ||-chained fallback 'brew link gcc@8' command succeeds with an "already linked" warning.
