After fixing these problems in libunwind, I can successfully run "make
check" in libunwind:

All 35 tests passed

That's great!  First time this happens!

So, I think we have two options:

 (1) leave GCC package as it is and make a libunwind v0.98.4 release which
     fixes the above-mentioned problems

 (2) change GCC package to include the libunwind version from the libunwind

I think (1) makes more sense _provided_ that in the not too distant
future, we can fix the packaging such that /lib/libunwind.so.7 is
provided by the libunwind package.  Without that, gdb won't be able to
unwind dynamically generated code and, IIRC, there are additional gcj
failures, which starts to matter, now that gij is being used for
providing Java applet functionality inside ia64 browsers.
