I've reliably reproduced this.  As far as I can tell, it's a problem
of makefile variable expansion in the top-level make.

For the folks just joining in gcc@, the problem is in the building of
libitm on the transactional-memory branch.  Libitm is written in C++,
and uses <cassert>.

On the *first* invocation of make, the value of CXX_FOR_TARGET that is
passed down to the libitm sub-make does *not* include the -I flags for
the appropriate libstdc++ directories, and so <cassert> is not found
and results in the obvious build error.  This failure can apparently
be masked by having an existing installation at PREFIX (which is I 
suppose why it took me so long to see the problem).

On the *second* invocation of make, the value of CXX_FOR_TARGET *does*
include the appropriate -I flags and compilation succeeds.

This failure does not appear for libjava, the only other c++ library,
because it only uses the C headers (<ctype.h> etc) instead of the C++
wrapper headers (<cctype>).  It doesn't *really* use libstdc++ at all.

As best I can figure, this...

>                 c++)

... gets expanded too early in the make process.  During the first
invocation of make the testsuite_flags script does not yet exist,
and the variable is not re-evaluated after configure-target-libstdc++-v3.

I have no idea how to fix this.  Ideas?
