Re: C++ in jemalloc

It turns out that /usr/local/bin/gdb crashing 
for the clang-built powerpc64 world is again
due to C++ exceptions being thrown, this time
in gdb80 itself.

This helps explain why for clang-based buildworld
experiments /usr/libexec/gdb is a better alternative
currently for the powerpc families.

Again the _Unwind_SetGR use in __gxx_personality_v0
