Hey Kelledin, did you ever figure out a clean way on how to handle
this? My tests so far have been unfruitful.

It appears the internal gcc include directory contains a mix of internal
gcc headers (VERY necessary) and the fixed headers. In other words, one
cannot just do away with the contents of that dir as things just don't
work afterwards.

I played around with the variables mentioned by Tush in both the configure
acript and in the Makefile and either gcc wouldn't build or it was
non-functional afterwards ie: it wouldn't build other stuff.

The issue has come up again on the support list.
