Your words that "it is not possible to use C compiler without glibc-
devel" suggest otherwise. So I think I did have a right to doubt...

I'm sorry if it sounded offensive. It wasn't my intention.

Did I write that? No, I didn't. Did the e-mail I reacted on even
mentioned test builds (or %{__cc} or any other idea put forth in other
parts of this e-mail thread)? No, it didn't. So please stop putting
words in my mouth.

My _only_ argument is that this _particular_ proposal (BR: glibc-devel
/ libstdc++-devel) does have _no_ advantage over the original one (BR:
gcc / gcc-c++).

Btw, I don't like the explicit BRs on gcc/gcc-c++ myself, but that's
irrelevant here.
