It's a start of course but is the resulting .config a good config or just 
more or less random?

Default OFF. I haven't messed with g++ lately but it had a tendency 
to not work without WCHAR ON. It may be back in 3.X days though.

case but I have a slight feeling that will hinder a release 
for quite some time..
