I am not a gcc or gcc++ expert.  I can offer the following
observation, but don't ask me what it means.  gcc is a major
project in its own right, and I do not know the ins-and-outs
of it.

In your logfile, you have the sequence:

===> gnu/lib/libstdc++
sed -e ...etc... > strstream-fixed.cc
rm -f .depend
mkdep -f .depend -a    -DIN_GLIBCPP_V3 -DHAVE_CONFIG_H
mkdep -f .depend -a

The second one does not have the -DIN_GLIBCPP_V3 -DHAVE_CONFIG_H
or the three settings of -I.  In a logfile of one of my own
buildworlds, both of those mkdep's seem to start out with the same
set of options.  I expect the missing options are significant, but
I do not know why they would be missing, or what to do about them.
