: That is fine for the pkg Makefile but doesn't DTRT for the binary pkg.

Why not (other than properly changing that DEPENDS to a BUILD_DEPENDS)?  
This DTRT in my eyes, as a system with egcs has the libg2c runtime necessary
to support its executables.  A system without egcs won't be able to install
a binary pkg built by it.
