Imagine you are compiling gcc-pass2 against the latest glibc.

The host has an older glibc and some headers got fixed by gcc-pass1.

You are using gcc-pass1 to compile gcc-pass2.

Can you not see that having headers from the old glibc (that are now living
inside the gcc-pass1 private include dir and thus override everything) is a
potential problem?

stdio.h? pthead.h? bits/sigthread.h?

That is EXACTLY why we had to disable fixincludes in the 1st place (but back
then it was the Ch 6 gcc that broke).

It's crystal clear to me.
