Weren't you going to rewrite rebase in C?  It is very likely that it wouldn't
be accepted into binutils otherwise.

The biggest issue with relying on libstdc++.a for for setup.exe is that it
requires this library to be built for cross-compilation.  I have no idea how
to do that.

We have a looming problem here, though, since we will need to include at
least a libsupc++.a for -mno-cygwin if/when we start using gcc 3.x.  I can't
build setup.exe with newer versions of gcc currently due to this lack.
I don't know if libstdc++.a even builds under mingw currently.
