In theory yes.
- 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.
