Yikes!  This is wrong!  Since the version number is part of the path to the cc1
(etc.) executables, and the version number is hard-coded into gcc, it's looking
for all of the support files in the wrong place.  And the reason is...

Old versions of gnats did something very bad.  They diverted /usr/bin/gcc, and
replaced it with their own Ada-supporting version.  Which means that when the
gcc version changed, the gcc program kept the obsolete version number.  Oops.

Purge gnats from your system, or upgrade to a later version which supplies its
own "gnatgcc" binary.
