   I think so too. If the Cygwin example had been raised a week ago I
wouldn't have used ${with_newlib} to enable use of the cache file.

   Status is that I would still hate to loose the ability to build the
simulator targets in a straight-forward way. At the same time, I can easily
live with adding one more option to the configure command to get the
simulator targets to build. So my suggestion is this:

1) Make the cached link test results require an explicit option to enable
them. I can code that up tomorrow.
2) Put in the libstdc++ patch.
3) Revert the top level changes for the -B and -L options.

   Does this sound safe enough?
