Ok. Added.

I removed that part.

More precisely, only the system libgcc_s.so.1 should be visible to the
system dynamic linker for the binaries come from the ditribution vendor.
I have many copies of libc.so.6 on my machine. It is ok as long as they
are not visible to the system dynamic linker. One word of caution, never
set DT_RPATH to "" in the system binaries :-).

I can live with that. At least, the users should be aware that they are
tempering with the system library :-).

Here is an update on my last patch.

Thanks for all the comments.

	* configure.in (slibdir): Set according to if the shared libgcc
	library is a system shared library.
	* configure: Rebuild.

	* gcc.c (compiler_release): New string for the compiler
	release.
	(option_map): Add --release/-dumprelease.
	(display_help): Add -dumprelease.
	(process_command): Initialize compiler_release and handle
	-dumprelease.
