Yes, but once you get it set up in the script...

I don't know how Cygwin handles it (maybe I should download
some source packages - I'll), but the Linux distributions seem
to just split it without recompiling the whole thing various
times with --enable-languages=c++ (you don't need to specify
c), then --enable-languages=c++,java etc.

An example which works and may help Gerrit (I use the resulting
C and C++ packages) is the 3.3.1 script from Slackware -

I guess Cygwin doesn't need a separate C++ package.

Space matters when you enable all languages. In the above, the
resulting .tgz packages use 9.116.303 bytes for C and C++, and
more 21.065.308 for the other languages. Uncompressed...
