I'm saying that the snapshot-date from gcc-4.2 is one sjhill used at one
point -- or still uses, i don't know= and that gcc-4.2 from the 4_2-branch
-- which i'm using -- can build a c, c++ and fortran frontend just fine.

Furthermore i'm observing that we do not (yet, patches welcome) use
uClibc++ (http://cxx.uclibc.org/ for your convenience) for gcc in
