Hello Nicola,

I'm not sure we want to do this in this way. Mixing -fobjc-exceptions code with old style exception code will most likely cause serious problems. (AFAICT, unlike Apple, we actually use GCC's native exception handling features already where as Apple still does setjmp/longjmp for the new constructs for backward compatibility.) An update in gcc shouldn't require you to recompile everything. I think we should only activate the feature if explicitly requested by the user as a ./configure option.

Or did I miss something?
