It is possible to avoid including libstdc++ headers, but since
cygserver.exe links against
libstdc++, we'd still need to build libstdc++, and we still have the
mingw-crt headers dependency.
So I'm not sure there's really any point essentially in-lining part of
libstdc++'s new header so that we
can build without libstdc++.
