You can run the tests with a compiler and library that have already
been installed. Make sure that the compiler (e.g., g++) is in your
PATH. If you are using shared libraries, then you must also ensure that
the directory containing the shared version of libstdc++ is in your
LD_LIBRARY_PATH, or equivalent. If your GCC source tree is
at /path/to/gcc, then you can run the tests as follows:
runtest --tool libstdc++ --srcdir=/path/to/gcc/libstdc++-v3/testsuite
Anyway. I don't test this way often, so all I know is that it used to
work. If you have problems let me know and I'll fix 'em.
