Personally I do not mind requiring latest 4-STABLE to build -CURRENT
(either for cross or simple `world').  I think that is all we can
officially support.  I know RU wants to be able to upgrade from say 4.1 to
5-CURRENT.  I think that is a nice thing; but if it is going to be a
requirement it should become an officially stated one.

The only fix is to import all of libiberty and create a config.h that
implies Version 7.

It would be the same problem without autoconf, the code could have been
written only the the 5-CURRENT API.

I personally believe we should build GCC in the normal manner, but this
is no longer my decision to make.
