   Probably should be fixed, now that gcc3 builds a shared libgcc (see below).

i know it has *something* to do with exception handling, but could
someone please explain why we need to use libgcc_s for anything but
c++ programs (and possible even there only those that need it?)
programs linked against are from experience MUCH more
likely to fail to run because it is missing than other random
libraries... but when it's not needed for anything (what in the
current system is broken with out it, for instance?) i think we
should seriously consider avoiding it when possible.
