Given that PPL is a C++ library, you need to build it with g++ since
Studio CC and g++ aren't ABI-compatible.

That said, I'm using them in my Solaris GCC bootstraps, although it
admittedly took some effort to build initially and using it requires you
to jump through hoops to get the configure options right.  I agree that
this is an incredible mess right now.

install.texi documents them as optional:

Necessary to build GCC with the Graphite loop optimizations.

but that sentence could probably be clarified.
