That would make the clang binary non-portable to other systems (which
may have different GCC versions).

I'd rather have this detection be done at clang start time. I really
don't think it would have any significant performance penalty (I'm
guessing the code that tries to find header files would need to do a
bunch of file ops anyway to go through the hardcoded list of paths -
so if that hard-coded list was shorter because we'd add the right
thing to it at start time, we'd save doing all that other work later
