Mant libraries, including libstdc++ (the standard library in g++) implement support for -fno-exceptions by just calling abort() instead of throw. I would advise just doing that, as from my experience anything else turns into an unreadable mess very quickly. It is also reasonable to make the function called user-defined and allow longjmping out, under the condition memory will leak, so users should aim to clean up and exit, not get exceptions repeatedly.
