The problem here is that c++rt.o is compiled with `-fpic', while the
other objects file were compiled with `-fPIC'. They don't mix on
some architectures (e.g. sparc).

You can work-around this by building a c++rt.0 with `-fPIC' and use that
to build the library.

I'm not sure what a generic solution should look like.
