I'm surprised it works, since it was partly specfile based too. Are
you sure everything at the linking stage was working (including
inhibiting search of non-musl paths), and not just the compiler?

That shouldn't be a problem.

Building gcc 4.6.2 with C++ support and libstdc++ should work fine as
long as you replace libstdc++/config/os/gnu-linux with generic to
eliminate the poking at glibc locale internals. Once you have it
working you should (in theory) be able to build other compilers
written in C++...
