Absolutely OK with me, much less confusing. Could you possibly also

but until it's ready, we should just mention the steps unique to libstdc++
-- installing locales, for example -- and refer to the main pages for

so users will usually be hunting our pages down before reading the GCC pages.
This rips out all the instructions for how to set up separate source and
build trees, the commands to issue, and so forth. Reactions?
