This works:

ld -t -x -shared  -o    --whole-archive libg++_pic.a
--no-whole-archive /usr/lib/c++rt0.o

and so does this

ld -t -x -shared  -o    --whole-archive libg++_pic.a
--no-whole-archive /usr/lib/c++rt0.o -Bstatic -lcurses >& ld.log

and now 'cd /usr/src/gnu/lib ; make' completes without errors. I'm now
rebuilding curses, and then expect to try gnu/lib/ again. I probably won't
know if that works until tomorrow--this business goes slowly on a mac, and
it's past my bedtime already.
