Can we please have this bug fixed ASAP? I can confirm that Thorsten's
patch solves the bjam issue on m68k, and the g++ ICE should also have
been fixed more than a year ago.

So why did this not have been added so far? *wondering*

And while we are at it, please mind
https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=793404 . Some parts of
your debian/rules do smell and should be subject to improval.
