Please explain this, then:

When I tweak my failing link line to specifically pull in the _old_ libgcc,
it works. (I was doing a 'make build' with DESTDIR set, which probably is
why I still have the old libgcc.)

Looking at the nm output, I see the following differences:

    Only in /usr/lib/libgcc.a
	_eh.o _op_vnew.o _op_vdel.o _op_delete.o _op_new.o _new_handler.o

    Only in $(DESTDIR)/usr/lib/libgcc.a

To simply reinstall libgcc at this point would trash my current system!

Either I built libgcc incorrectly (I thought I just built it as part of the
'make build') or there is something genuinely wrong with the sources I supped.
