The issue is not really the files themselves. It's the fact that the
release cycles are not coordinated, so which c++filt people get
depends upon which release of binutils or gcc they install. If they
happen to install an older binutils after a newer gcc, they may get a
c++filt which does not work for the version of gcc they have.
One way to fix this would be to have c++filt support shared libraries
to do the actual demangling, and have gcc install an appropriate
shared library in an agreed upon place so that c++filt could use that
library. That would have the advantage that objdump, et. al., could
automatically demangle symbols from a newer version of gcc.
