   Sadly this will also disable all builtin functions (in particular things 
   like builtin memcpy) unless we take steps to prevent this by adding 
   -fbuiltin *after* -ffreestanding.

unfortunately, we *don't* want the builtin `printf' because it's wrong.
these builtins should really have their own -fswitches each.  :-(
