They are mostly independent. crt0 has to pull in exit(3) from libc to be
standard compliant and there is no real way to avoid that. I see no good
justification for adding other requirements on the interface just for
the sake of static linkage. The way global objects in C++ are
initialized is the same -- ensure that a reference exists to the object
file that declares the global variable, so the linker can do the rest.
