this is a result of toolchain/24593: -current cannot compile c++ programs.
The recent split of the exception handling routines of libgcc.a into
libgcc_eh.a seems not to completely work yet.
Therefore libtool's configure cannot run a certain test program and a string
remains empty. 

A workaround is to combine the two libraries again, so you have the state
from before:
cd `mktemp -d libgcc`
ar xo /usr/lib/libgcc.a
ar xo /usr/lib/libgcc_eh.a
ar cru libgcc.a *.o
cp libgcc.a /usr/lib/libgcc.a
