There's one other reason I don't like the CPLUSPLUS_CPP_SPEC
mechanism. We're overriding the default from mips.h, so we've
introduced a maintenance burden. If someone modifies that one, they
have to remember to update the one in iris6.h.
So for that reason and also for being able to specifically target
pre-irix6.5, IMHO I prefer to solve it the way I originally did with
