There might be. I haven't worked out all the details; you need to
make sure that your patch doesn't break toolsets like the one I posted
as a workaround, especially when used in conjunction with other such
toolsets and the stock gcc toolset (IOW, make sure all the
command-lines come out right). The whole system is so fragile that I
don't want to think too hard about it, but if you test your patch and
it does the right thing on a build with many targets, we will accept
