Yep, I know.  I had just assumed that was the way things were supposed 
to be by now.  If someone wanted the relative tooldir stuff, he'd have 
to build the gcc subdir separately.

This is not very easy to fix because the relative tooldir should only
be passed down to gcc, since other tools won't have the gcc-lib
subtree.  I won't be able to try to fix it in the next two weeks, as
I'll be in a trip, and I will be mostly disconnected :-(

Pray for me; I hope I can survive for two weeks without e-mail :-)
