Re: Regression tester v. runtime libraries

In theory yes.

However,

- libstdc++-v3 got switched off because of a bug in linking C++
  objects compiled with different optimisation levels that would cause
  FAILs to appear and disappear at random; and

- libjava never did get switched on, partly because it doesn't work on
  powerpc-eabisim, so it would only affect the x86 native, which makes
  it hard for others to fix any problems the regression tester finds.
  Maybe I should revisit this.
