DESTDIR vs. libstdc++

gcc is completely inconsistent in its handling of DESTDIR.

This is not at all surprising, considering that historically, it
does ignore it. However, now that libstdc++-v3 is part of it, we end
up with a small part of gcc that does handle DESTDIR correctly, and
the rest of it that blatantly ignores it.

I'd like this solved at some point. The hairy parts are:
- cygnus configure is totally blind to DESTDIR.
- cross-compiles.

Ideas ?
