Maybe --enable-version-specific-libstdc++?  Since what it's doing is
allowing us to keep a set of libstdc++ includes & libraries for each
specific version of the compiler.  I'm not particularly fond of either,
so use whichever one you like.

Could I suggest you also submit a change to the configuration instructions?


Since this is a new option it should note that it's only available for
egcs-1.1 and later releases.

Otherwise it seems quite reasonable and should be installed.
