Btw., I suggested earlier that an intermediate step to not break C++ build
and to excercise the various problems with installing and testing with
C++ built GCC without at the same time requiring a C++ host compiler
would be to build stage1 with a C compiler and stage2 and stage3 with
GCC as C++ compiler.  That will also keep us stay in the C/C++ intersection
until a useful use of C++ comes up (one might argue that building stage1
with C++ and stage2 and stage3 with C avoids regressions because of the
use of C++ of course).
