The commands said first rm gcc's private dir, then run 'make install'.

This way all the gcc-pass1 private headers are removed which include fixed 
headers. gcc-pass2 had that fixinclude patch, so on make install no new fixed 
headers are installed.

How's that different from removing all the include files before make install 
on pass2? The files that matter will be installed again (ie: gcc's own 
includes without the fixed ones). Or does 'make install' somehow need files 
in gcc-lib/*/*/include ?
