I don't like -debug=c++, because it says nothing about the library.
-debug=c++lib is more precise, and not too much more typing.
Please help me try to keep some semblance of consistency around
Consistency with what? The library is called libstdc++, we link with
-lstdc++, and it's the library for the C++ language. Using 'cxx'
instead of 'c++' is okay when required (e.g., for macro names), but
unless we're going to change the name of the library I think it's more
confusing to put cxx's where we could have c++'s. At this point, the
only places we expose "cxx" to the user are:
1) the configure options for libstdc[+x][+x] debugging and precompiled
2) the _GLIBCXX_DEPRECATED and _GLIBCXX_CONCEPT_CHECKS
I'd guess that most users that have to deal with either #1 or #2
understand why we need to use cxx in those contexts.
