Bug Description

When using the Linaro GCC 4.6-2011.06-0 release as a base for building an Android cross toolchain the build fails with:
  checking for library containing strerror... configure: error: Link tests
  are not allowed after GCC_NO_EXECUTABLES.
  make[2]: *** [configure-target-libiberty] Error 1
  make[2]: Leaving directory

Android is using bionic and these configure tests are known to be fragile when using a different target libc. After applying the follwing patch to the Linaro GCC 4.6-2011.06-0 release the Android toolchain can be build without the --disable-libquadmath switch:
svn diff -r 175559:175560 svn:// > 175560.patch

Since HP's patch is in the FSF's 4.6 branch already - Do we want to include it into our next release if it's not picked up automatically?

I don't see why we can't just cherry pick that patch.
