One thing which I noticed is that the netbsd.h files end up removing
the notification of '-G' as an option which takes an argument. That's
why "-G0" works but "-G" "0" does not. This seems to violate the principle
of least surprise.
I wasn't sure which is the more appropriate place to add this, though.
I wouldn't be surprised, for example, if the alpha platform might also
use this flag.
It's kind of a trivial diff. . .

I haven't looked into the libstdc++ failure. It worked fine in cross
compilation under 1.0.2, but also fails under cross compilation in 1.1b.
