Re: Converting GCC to compilation with C++

More or less. That would be a possibility, but one that is only needed
by people who have no C++ compiler and no GCC installed. With a C++
compiler you could compile Java even in stage1; and with GCC you could
compile the C++ front-end in stage1, and use it to build Java in stage2
like it is now.
And of course *that* is true for GNAT as well, if you already have a
binary GNAT installed, you can compile Ada in stage1, which is what
we do all the time :-)
