Hmm - We should perhaps discuss what the --enable/disable-shared/static
switches are supposed to do......:) Should they affect the 'target' (the
bins gcc will generate) or the 'host' (the resultung gcc/g++)?

I noticed when I compile gcc (3.2.3) with --disable-shared I get a
static libstdc++, so that C++ programs, you are compiling with this
compiler will be linked static against libstdc++.
