Most of the code/ideas is coming from the gcc-field.pl script written by
vasi. See
http://wiki.finkproject.org/index.php/Fink:Policy:GCC
for more information.

Probably needs some more error checking.

    The c++filt matching criterion is overly-broad. There are
    some packages (glib2 and some or maybe packages that use it,
    for example) that have symbols that are munged by c++filt
    but that are not C++ (and hence do not require a GCC field).
    We've generally tried to avoid adding GCC to packages that
    don't need it (minimize inter-tree differences, need to
    remember "high" revisions and cascading deps for them), so
    having this be a fatal validator error is not a good idea
    for core IMO.
