That comment is right since the flags output by testsuite_flags do
depend on information passed down from the toplevel

| The way the macros are set up explicitly avoids using the flags from the
| testsuite_flags script when the directory being dealt with is 'libjava'
| or 'libstdc++-v3'.  This is presumably because the script doesn't exist
| until libstdc++-v3 is configured.

testsuite_flags is generated from during
libstdc++-v3 configuration.

| Presumably its flags are used for c++ tests,

Mostly.  But any client built at the same time and that needs to
locate V3 headers has to invoke that script in order to get the
correct values.
