Re: gcc 3.2's cpp breaks configure scripts

Nice :)

You could invert it to yield something that was quadratic in the number
of system directories, which might be preferable since the number of
system directories is fixed and may be quite low compared to the silly
number of -I flags used by some programs (look at Evolution build one of
these days); something like

static struct search_path *
remove_dup_nonsys_dirs (pfile, head_ptr, end)
     cpp_reader *pfile;
     struct search_path **head_ptr;
     struct search_path *end;
  struct search_path *cur;

  for (cur = *head_ptr; cur != end; cur = cur ? cur->next : *head_ptr)
    if (cur->sysp)
	struct search_path *prev, *other;
        for (other = *head_ptr, prev = NULL; other && other != cur;
             other = other->next)
            if (INO_T_EQ (cur->ino, other->ino)
                && cur->dev == other->dev
                && !(other->sysp))
                other = remove_dup_dir (pfile, prev, head_ptr);
            prev = other;

  return prev;

(I'm not sure whether the head_ptr manipulation in the outer loop is
needed anymore, and this is utterly untested).

Even though I've done this myself forever, it *is* quite tricky to keep
libstdc++ working for multiple GCC versions in that situation.

(--enable-version-specific-runtime-libs or waiting for GCC 3.3 is the
solution to that, of course.)
