The best thing to do would be to patch gcc so that it doesn't run 
fixincludes.  This "fixincludes" thing is getting to be a real 
hassle, and the more I think about it, the more I think it was a 
bad idea from the start.

I'll check out how to turn off fixincludes as soon as I get some 
free time.  That should be later tonight...
