I don't believe that the boostrap command actually copies the example
file into /etc.  It creates the suggested file and does remind you to
copy it over, but doesn't actually do so (which is a good thing!).

No, that is correct.  gcc should completely ignore that file.

That won't help you.  As I saw from the other messages, there seems to
be an include missing.  I find that odd, given that gcc does, AFAIK,
compile under Irix.  I'll give it a shot some time this or next week on
an Irix system as well to see if I can confirm the problem.
