rs6000-cpus.def, included via tm.h - see

I realise does detect this, but the point of the 
additional version check is to provide somewhat more helpful advice to 
the user.

On 4.6.4, c-family/c-common.h:

fatal error: c-family/c-common.h: No such file or directory

ajd@ka1:/scratch/ajd/tmp/cross/gcc-4.6.4-nolibc/powerpc64-linux$ find 
-name c-common.*

Are we sure the version check in gcc-common.h:59 is correct, or is this 
just a peculiarity of my particular toolchain?

I need to build another 4.5 toolchain, I'll try to do that this week.
