Committed to gcc and (shortly) to src.

AFAICS this is used by libiberty when --enable-shared.

Also, considering that libstdc++ compiles its own cp-demangle.c, and has always done so since it started using the libiberty demangler (r78553):

        rm -f $@
        $(LN_S) $(toplevel_srcdir)/libiberty/cp-demangle.c $@
cp-demangle.lo: cp-demangle.c
        $(LTCOMPILE) -DIN_GLIBCPP_V3 -Wno-error -c $<
cp-demangle.o: cp-demangle.c
        $(C_COMPILE) -DIN_GLIBCPP_V3 -Wno-error -c $<

I wonder why we still compile libiberty for the target at all. Neither it nor libobjc needs it, which would leave only all-target-fastjar (which is a bogus target anyway) and all-target-winsup.

Cygwin people, does winsup actually need a target libiberty? If so, were you aware that the target libiberty is not compiled as PIC?
