First, I must say, many thanks for all your hard work on gcc4!

Since when exactly do we care about 3PPs here? :-)  Doesn't sound like
much of a reason not to have -shared-libgcc the default for gcc as well
(unless, of course, -static is specified, as you did with the other
languages).  Would you consider changing this for -3?

No, it just seems to ignore it entirely.  The only way I've found so far
is to define CC="gcc-4 -shared-libgcc" for configure.  Not pretty.  :-(
