The online insstructions are correct for the current snapshot. (Hmmm,
actually, they're slightly outdated for the current snapshot.) Instructions
for 2.90.8 are the ones /included/ with 2.90.8.
Basically, unpack GCC. Remove the listdc++ and libio directories.
Unpack 2.90.8, apply the patch I posted, move it into the gcc directory,
rename it 'libstdc++' so it takes the place of the one that was there.
(Nothing takes the place of the libio directory that you've already deleted.)
Configure and bootstrap. There are probably some funky configuration
options to use, since gcc didn't know about libstdc++-v3 at the time.
(Was --enable-namespaces still used then? I no longer recall.)
Or you can wait twenty-odd days and install GCC 3.0. To which end I need
to do some serious cleanup of those online docs...
