Yes, I've seen this --with-oldtoolchain flag in ./configure, but: when 
exactly is my toolchain old enough so that this flag has to be used? Is my 
binutils 2.18 too old?

So, I'm all in favour of --with-crts (which I would use when compilation breaks
with some descriptive error message) or, even better: can't we set this 
flag during ./configure automatically, based on the actual toolchain installed
on the system? ./configure should be able to determine this, no?
