The following program is valid in all versions of GCC from 4.7.1 through trunk[1]. Relational operations on std::nullptr_t don't really make sense since there's only one value.

auto lt = nullptr < nullptr;
auto gt = nullptr > nullptr;
auto le = nullptr <= nullptr;
auto ge = nullptr >= nullptr;

This was apparently addressed by DR583/N3478 (thanks to Richard Smith for providing these).

Mine (for GCC 12).
