So it turns out that one reason it's so expensive to run is that it
does a *lot* more than it claims to do.

It says "we need a c++ compiler that supports the designated
initializer GNU extension", but then it actually includes a header
file from hell, rather than just test designated initializers.

This patch makes the cc1plus overhead go down a lot. That said, I'm
doubtful we really want gcc plugins at all, considering that the only
real users have all apparently migrated to clang builtin functionality
