Okay, sure. I could do that by hacking up cpp's default paths. Not too much
But what do I do about linking? I suppose I could put the .so links and static
libraries into /usr/lib/egcs-lib, and "cheat" on the linking specs so it looks
there first. But it would probably take me a while to figure out how to do it.
Summary: if you want egcs packaged so that the two libg++-dev packages can
coexist, it's going to take extra time.
