Hi Diego,

The nightly build of gcc-4.7 based ppc64 and ppc32 crosstools have failed since
the build server upgraded to gPrecise one week ago. Log shows a configuration fa
ilure on libmudflap.

checking for suffix of object files... /lib/cpp
configure: error: in
configure: error: C++ preprocessor "/lib/cpp" fails sanity check
See `config.log' for more details.

There is no /lib/cpp on gprecise server, though it should not be used here.

What happened was that libmudflap configure looks for a preprocessor
by trying $CXX -E and then backing off to /lib/cpp.  $CXX -E is
failing with "unrecognized command line option
‘-funconfigured-libstdc++’", and the /lib/cpp backstop then fails
also. The -funconfigured-libstdc++ is because configure can't find
libstdc++/scripts/testsuite_flags. This is a so-far undiagnosed race
in gcc make, masked where /lib/cpp is available.   And that's absent
because in this build, for whatever reason, libstdc++ loses a race
with libmudflap.

The theory is confirmed by:
 1) if we force --job=1, build can succeed
 2) If we apply the following patch to build-gcc/Makefile, build can
succeed. After removing this dependency, build fails with the same
error again.

Is this patch ok for google/gcc-4_7?

If the same issue exists on upstream trunk, how does the patch sound to trunk?
