I've just pushed two commits to the branch to fix this issue. Before those, the
last commit left the branch in a state where an incremental build seemed ok
(because libgcc/libgomp weren't rebuilt with the new cc1), but a from-scratch
build was broken like you've shown. LULESH is known to work. I also intend to
perform a trunk merge soon.

This patchset and the branch lay the foundation, there's more work to be
done, in particular on the performance improvements side. There should be
an agreement on these fundamental bits first, before moving on to fine-tuning.
