| Gabriel, can you explain how it worked correctly in all the previous
I don't understand exactly what you mean by "it worked correctly".
The documentation says:
Disable generation of information about every class with virtual
functions for use by the C++ runtime type identification features
(`dynamic_cast' and `typeid'). If you don't use those parts of the
language, you can save some space by using this flag. Note that
exception handling uses the same information, but it will generate
it as needed.
In particular, you cannot use dynamic_cast and -fno-rtti at the same
time. So far, it appears to me that your programs were contrary to
the documented recommendation.
This PR should be closed as invalid.

As far as I understand the issue, yes.
