On some of my Linux systems, I only have GCC 3 as installed via pkgsrc. So
I have seen this issue several times after building other software.

It would be good to have an option for the gcc pkgsrc so when it installs
it will copy or symlink those various libs to the lib directory (in my
case, my LOCALBASE is /usr).

That way building code without pkgsrc and using just common steps will
work the first time.

(I do see a PR 21226 to look at.)
