Re: Add -iquote support

A few changes needed:

1) You removed the processing of -I- entirely.  Better it should
   produce an error.

   in the documentation.)


2) The comment at the head of remove_duplicates, explaining why we
   can't merge the lists and then uniquize them, shouldn't be removed;
   it's still true.  Just change the notation.


3) You removed the logic that sets quote_ignores_source_dir but you
did not remove the logic that uses it, which is now dead; please do so.


4) This requires an entry in the "Differences from previous versions"
   section of the CPP manual


and an entry in the 3.5 release notes;

Can we wordsmith this after the main patch goes in? If not, do you have anything you'd like in it?

I'd just say something like:

-I- will be removed in gcc 3.5. Users that want to object are invited to contact -iquote is meant to replace the use of -I-. See <insert html link to generated html doc and gcc patches discussion here> for details.

And like the ChangeLog, I'm happy to write it and send it out, but I will not be putting my name on it, as I don't want to be associated with the removal of a feature a user might be using. Whose names should I put on it?

5) Why are you messing with g77?

Removed from the diff.
