10. Gave up C++ RTTI and exceptions - WebKit porting to Mona OS

Where are we?

  1. building JavaScriptCore on Mona OS needs ICU
  2. ICU needs RTTI support
  3. Have to build libsupc++ to support RTTI <=== We are HERE

On the last article 9. How to support C++ RTTI and exceptions on your hobby OS, I wrote C++ RTTI and exceptions worked. That's true, but we have a trouble on libc dependencies. The problem is a very special problem on our OS which doen't have a cross compiler yet.
So for now, we gave up RTTI and exception support.
I'm going to check older version of ICU which doesn't require RTTI.
