Re: PATCH: Configure libstdc++-v3 against gthr.h

For the record, a patch was required to get __GXX_WEAK__ defined
properly for this alpha platform (and I think all alpha platforms
using ELF that support weak symbols).  It had not been publicly posted
for application yet since it hadn't passed bootstrap and I still
wasn't sure it is right.

Again, for the record only, here is what I had in my tree (with some
commentary as to how I arrived at it):

Unless this part of gcc/cppinit.c is deemed to be in error (it does
appear to be a bizarre way to check whether a port supports #weak):

        _cpp_define_builtin (pfile, "__GXX_WEAK__ 1");
        _cpp_define_builtin (pfile, "__GXX_WEAK__ 0");

(Ignoring that this idiom appears in many places and is ripe for
better generalization,) Fixed with this patch taken from
gcc/config/elfos.h (which I am now testing with a full bootstrap):
