This first part of this patch is obvious.  While looking into a similar 
issue in the second hunk I realized that probably the entire paragraph 
could/should go.  It does not look current / like a FAQ any more these
days.

Okay?

Although I agree that problems with v2 headers are not reported now
and that paragraph could go, the next one starting "If the headers"
makes less sense ... which headers?

How about "If you are using headers in ${prefix}/include/g++-3 ..." ?
