We could even cook up a testsuite which wether g++/libgcc_s/libstdc++
follow those requiremenets.
I think it would be reasonable to actively fail the configure
on Linux if these requirements are not met.  Otherwise it's
sure to be the case that someone won't read this even if we
were to document it properly.

Mark, what do you think?
I agree.  I don't think we need to do this for GCC 3.2, but I do think
it would be good to do this at some point.

This is an instance of the "choices are bad" idea; if we remove the
option to screw up configuring stuff that is a good thing.

We could, instead of failing, just hardwire the switches on and warn.
