gcc-3.3 does have _Unwind_Resume_or_Rethrow. I don't see how this can
work when 3.3 is the bootstrap compiler. My IA-64 build machine runs
debian testing which uses gcc-3.3 as the system compiler, so I believe I
have already tested this and shown that it can't work, though it is
possible that I made a mistake somewhere.
I.e. it's always better.
I think that is arguable. It is harder to write the documention if you
have a configure test and will sometimes work and sometimes fail to
work, as opposed to one that always fails.
