I should note that I submitted a PR on precisely this issue today, with a
full fix.  22xxx-something (don't have the number handy, but it should be in
the next PR web-reindex.)

Actually, I don't think this is a good idea, because of the fact that gcc's
runtimes are compiler-version-specific (and FSF isn't known to update the
major version numbers on those runtimes as often as should be necessary).
However, if gcc were to supply the appropriate RPATH as needed, there
wouldn't be this problem.
