I believe that this has been tested pretty well by both Jeremy and Greg 
and checks OK for my last two jhalfs runs (well into Chapter 6 - having 
already been replaced by pass 2 gcc).  However, if needs be, it can 
easily be reverted.  Remember that this only affects the temporary 
toolchain until gcc-pass2.

I'd also like to introduce a change to gcc-pass2 that kills the /usr and 
/lib search dirs.  If you think it needs further testing before 
introduction, we'll decide on that, but IMO, we do have the time if we 
all keep churning out jhalfs runs (I do hope that you see how valuable 
jhalfs is now ;-) ).

If this last change checks out, I'll be letting it run to completion so 
that I can begin on the i18n testing/changes and then, later, ICA/Farce 
runs (which I will definitely need help interpreting).
