I should add: the concern for IA64 is really only not to break it, rather
than to make bootstrap builds work there; IA64 has never had the support
in GCC for the sort of bootstrap builds I hope to make easier
(specifically, other architectures have inhibit_libc conditionals on
architecture-specific bits of libgcc using system headers; IA64 doesn't),
so I'm not particularly concerned about failing to make bootstraps
smoother for IA64 if they can be made smoother for all other platforms.
