[cfe-dev] Compiling libcxx without changes to the system dirs

I'm trying to replace libstdc++ with libcxx in our project. I read
the instructions provided at libcxx home page.
I found that I dont need to copy the headers (cxxabi.h,
bits/cxxabi_tweaks.h, cxxabi-forced.h) from /usr/include/c++/4.5/... to
/usr/local/include/... . I copied the files to a folder and included
that in the compilation of the libcxx sources.
I also found that I didnt need to copy the libc++.so* to /usr/lib, I
didnt need to create the /usr/include/c++/v1 softlink pointing to
libcxx/include. I got around by including the libcxx/include in the
header path (-I..libcxx/include) and libcxx/lib path in the lib path
I had to set HEADER_INCLUDE=...libcxx/include and
SOURCE_LIB=...libcxx/lib before invoking testit.This way I got around
making any changes to the system dirs to use libcxx.
Do you see any obvious mistakes above?
