I'll see what I can come up with to make it clearer that --without
isn't all that useful :-)

Nope.  In fact, it's on by default for the PA, alpha & rs6000/ppc
in the mainline sources.

Not at the moment on the PA.  I'm not sure why, though the most
likely culprit is not restoring the PIC register when we catch
a throw, but I see code that's supposed to handle it.

I believe you can use EH with shared libraries as long as you
don't try to throw across shared library boundaries.
