Now that we build the C-family compilers with a C++ compiler by
default, is the changed documented anywhere? I looked
at the "installation" part of the manual but I could not find anything
there. I looked at the wiki page, but many things there seem not
to be updated. Where should I have looked? Thanks,
configure.html does say:
When bootstrapping, build stages 2 and 3 of GCC using a C++ compiler
rather than a C compiler. Stage 1 is still built with a C compiler.
This is enabled by default and may be disabled using
There are other hints like the default value of --with-boot-ldflags which
build.html doesn't say anything. Options have to be passed through
BOOT_CFLAGS which doesn't look much like CXX, but then it doesn't matter.
