In order to alleviate that feeling, I'd like to propose the following
patch, which I have successfully bootstrapped and tested on
x86_64-linux (including Ada and obj-c++), i686-linux (likewise),
sparc64-linux (with Ada but without Java), ia64-linux (default
languages, i.e. without Ada) and ppc64-linux (likewise).  Testsuite
run (no bootstrap) on hppa-linux (C and C++ only) is still running and
I expect to have results tomorrow.

Thus, OK for trunk?
