-fgnu-runtime is long-deprecated, and I’m not sure what happens if it’s 
specified *after* -fobjc-runtime=.  It may override it (and default to an 
earlier runtime target).  It’s probably best to remove it.

Did you run the libobjc2 tests (which include a test for C++ exceptions in 
Objective-C++), and did they pass?
