Can you mention that in general, Clang should automatically detect the best
version of libstdc++ headers available and use them, and that it will look
both for system installations of libstdc++ as well as installations
adjacent to clang itself?
The --with-gcc-toolchain should really be a fallback for when the
configuration is quite strange.
