Gerald, I'll need your assitance here -- please correct me if I'm
Before we went down the "stagging hearders" road, Gerald could build the
GCC-3.0.x on solaris-2.8. Now he can't because of the multilib issue
which is showing on more targets -- David already complained about
that for GCC-3.0 vs. AIX.

The plan we agreed on was to have <limits> pregenerated. That means
we need to
1) have port-maintainers generate that header for various targets
2) make a surgery in the build architecture to suppress runninng
mknumeric_limits in favor of copying the pre-generated header.
(I don't know whether it was question to leave mknumeric_limits
for causual targets for which we don't have the corresponding
pregenerated-<header> -- I don't see much value for that)

I don't think we really want to revert the "stagging header" patch...
