DESTDIR is about temporarily installing in a tree such that you can
package something without interfering with whatever you have that's
already installed in the final location.  You create a tarball (or
cpio, whatever) out of what makes to DESTDIR, and then extract it onto
the root filesystem.  I don't see how DESTDIR can possibly be used as
a replacement for --with-gxx-include-dir.

Err...  IIRC, this changes the install location of libraries as well,
from ${libdir} to somewhere inside ${tooldir}.  It's not just about

I hope you agree DESTDIR has nothing to do with this now :-)
