I just bootstrapped and tested PCH with a clean tree.  It fails miserably.

Excerpt from libstdc++v3 config.log:
configure:4959: checking for enabled PCH
configure:4976: result: yes
configure:4980: checking for compiler with PCH support internal compiler error: Segmentation fault
Please submit a full bug report,
with preprocessed source if appropriate.
See <URL:> for instructions.
configure:5016: result: no

I think this used to work, or at least I never noticed it did not.
