Details

Similar to bug 12311, my build (pulled 26 Aug 99 20:00 PDT on closed, green
tree) barfs in webshell...gtk.  In my case, the error is due to the use of the
--fno-exceptions option with gcc 2.7.2.3's c++ (i.e., the option does not exist
and needs to be tied into configure).

I can dig out the exact location where the error first occurs, but since it's
pretty obviously a semi-generic makefile issue, I imagine it's not too hard to
track down.

Explicitly assigned to scc since it seems closely related to 12311/webshell.

The specific directory is webshell/embed/gtk/lib, and it seems to be the only
one that uses -fno-exceptions.  After deleting that, build appears to proceed
normally (until bug 12739).

Assigning to ramiro as he turned GtkMozilla on for linux as the default.
I copied the rtti & exceptions checks from the main configure.in into
GtkMozilla's configure.in.  It Works For Me(tm) but should be verified.
