I should have mentioned before that the last time someone synced the
two, it broke various things in Cygwin.  I think that DJ has been trying
to get a patch approved in gcc-land to fix this.  It is approved, I
believe, but it doesn't seem to have been checked in.

DJ, is this correct?  Is libiberty broken again for cygwin?
