libstdc++ definitely works with installed testing (there may be a bug or

That is however installed testing with a complete source tree available
(but not a build tree); I don't know exactly what is needed from outside
the testsuite/ directory (but see
libstdc++-v3/testsuite/lib/libstdc++.exp:libstdc++_init for what happens
during the testsuite setup).
Thanks. Having the source tree available is not a problem, as I require
it to copy the actual testsuites into the work tree. Adding a few more
files from the source tree would not be a problem.
C, C++, Fortran, Obj-C and Obj-C++ testing have been known to work in the
past for installed testing. Java, Ada and Go are quite likely to have
problems; I don't think I've tried installed testing for libmudflap,
libffi, libitm, libatomic (but it should work for libgomp).
Yeah, right now I'm concentrating on the main C, C++ and Fortran tests.
Once I have the basic harness ready, I will look at the other languages.
