Yes, I'd already gleaned this much, after google pointed me to the GCC
wiki, thanks. I was just somewhat surprised that these libraries get
built with GCC-5.3.0, without this additional configuration option,
whereas they were not with GCC-4.9.3, (unless I've misunderstood that
4.9.3 should actually support the feature.
Also, to be pedantic, this is a _configuration_ option, _not_ a
bootstrap option; you don't bootstrap the compiler build, when in a
cross hosted environment.

Well, the associated libraries seem to get built okay, but I don't
know about actual feature support, since I didn't configure with...

The GCC wiki says that the option is actually
'--enable-vtable-verify', _not_ '--enable-vtable-verification', but
that aside, it seems like kind of pointless redundancy to have both
'--enable-vtable-verify' and '--enable-libvtv' (enabled by default in
5.3.0) controlling what appear to be (ultimately) inseparable aspects
of the same feature.

Once again, yes, I'd gleaned as much from the GCC wiki, thanks.
