I'm still not convinced that all the targets possibly affected have been
dealt with. But, I don't consider myself knowledgeable enough in this
area, I'd like to see some comments from, eg, Jakub and Joseph, before
going ahead with the libstdc++ changes for 40133.

In your original message you mentioned sparc too. Is it now fine?
Anyway, the configure changes I prepared for 40133 aren't linux-specific
would run anywhere, as I said above I'd like to be reassured by Joseph
and/or Jakub that such kind of test is now safe to use everywhere as far
as the compiler proper bits are concerned.
