GCC 4.5.1: cannot compute suffix of object files: cannot compile

IMHO, it would be very sensible if gcc had an option to configure such that the 
location of the run-time libraries was hard-coded in. Then, as long as "gcc" is 
in the path, the libraries would be found.

This issue seems to come up time and time again. Some think that's a bad idea - 
but I think giving people the choice with an option to configure would be a good 

I've tried arguing for this on the gcc bug database, but I've never got anywhere.
