Installing gcc v2.95.2 with libstdc++-v3 (or 2?)

    gcc v2.95.2 as released 1999-10-24 
	( dated
    libstdc++ v2.10.0 (per dated 1999-04-02 
	(included with gcc)
Context: sparc-sun-solaris2.5 and 2.6, Gnu make

I have the following problems installing gcc v2.95.2.  Since the
relevant sources and scripts are in the gcc release, I'm posting to
gcc-help, but since the issues appear to be with libstdc++ I'm
cross-posting to that list.

    1.  Having created and changed to a build directory $objdir, I execute 

    $srcdir/configure  --prefix /usr/local/gcc/$vers --enable-shared \

It configures gcc (and its subdirectories), libiberty and texinfo, but
does not configure libio or libstdc++, and the toplevel Makefile does
not do those directories.  From the source to `configure` I'm not able
to figure out the --with switches, contingencies, etc. that would cause
those directories to be configured coordinately with gcc.  If I'm
reading the source correctly, they *should* be recognized.  My
alternative seems to be to figure out how to suppress namespaces in gcc
and to build libio and libstdc++ separately.  Can anyone help me get
`configure` to behave?

    2.  As compiled, g++ expects libstdc++ v3, but the distributed
package is v2, neither of which got installed.  What do I do, get a
development snapshot of v3 or jigger the g++ specs file to use v2 by
default?  Or lie and make a symbolic link from g++-3 to g++-2?  Verbose
output: the third from last line is what leads me to believe that
version 3 is sought.

    3.  We intend to use this gcc/g++ as a production compiler for our
students and faculty.  However, going over the Completion Checklist
dated 1999-05-18 (
I see that most functions in libstdc++ are in T status (implemented pending
tests) or V status (passed test suite), but quite a number are S (stub
only) and X (partially implemented or known buggy).  Incomplete
implementation of the "new" features described in ISO 14882 but not in the
ARM is not of too much concern, but I have qualms about giving non-gurus a
library with significant historic features that are broken, like va_end
etc. and setjmp, even though they're uncommon.  What is your opinion about
using this release in a production environment in which ARM-compliant code
has to work?

    4.  Good news for a change: we have tcl/tk 8.0 and thus are unable
to compile dejagnu-1.3 (which uses tk 7.5 symbols), but I ran many of the
tests from egcs-tests-1.1.2.tar.gz, scoring them manually.  gcc failed
only on its one Known Bug (if a structure that has a volatile data
member is declared in a  parameter list and has the register keyword,
the keyword is treated as an error rather than being ignored).  g++ test
cases (that I ran) that didn't include header files were all compiled /
executed / rejected correctly.
