PATCH: libgcj -vs- libstdc++-v3

With this patch I have built a working libgcj against a new compiler
configured with "--enable-libstdcxx-v3"

libgcj won't work with compilers configured with the "old" libstdc++ any
more, unless we link libgcj against libstdc++, because the
"old" libstdc++ doesn't have a separate libsupc++ at all.

A better fix to the explicit -lsupc++ would be to change the gcj front
end to always implicitly -lsupc++ when linking? Is there any potential
disadvantage to doing that?
