Thanks, that's better than nothing.

The application here is a GCC patch I'm working on (and off :)) to give it a -
stdlib=libstdc++|libc++ option. With older libc++ versions it appears to be
possible to use GCC's static libsupc++ as a source for the missing operators. I
presume that a trailing -lsupc++ linker argument will simply become a noop when
libc++ already provided all dependencies. To be confirmed of course (and sadly I
have no idea ATM how to write a test case.)

Why would vendors have done that? The only reason I can see is to allow a newer
libc++ to be used with older clang versions that provided the operators
implicitly, but such combinations shouldn't cause problems anyway, right?
