Say I branch gcc/gcc and keep all the runtime libraries pristine.  Now
suppose that a new change in mainline introduces changes in gcc/libgomp
which require a new compiler option.

Since I branched gcc/gcc I'm out of sync with mainline and now libgomp
doesn't build, forcing me to merge my branched directory.
