to be updated.  Where should I have looked?  Thanks,

configure.html does say:
    When bootstrapping, build stages 2 and 3 of GCC using a C++ compiler
    rather than a C compiler. Stage 1 is still built with a C compiler.
    This is enabled by default and may be disabled using

There are other hints like the default value of --with-boot-ldflags which includes -static-libstdc++.

build.html doesn't say anything. Options have to be passed through BOOT_CFLAGS which doesn't look much like CXX, but then it doesn't matter.
