This sounds like it makes it related to my earlier mails on this list
with the subject "Building www/webkit-gtk: undefined reference to
`__divmodti4'".  In my case, libgcc_s was apparently needed for a
compiler-called __divmodti4 funtion. It's also present in the static
version, libgcc.a (for gcc 7, but not for gcc 5).

Possibly a solution would be to modify gcc such that it never tries to
use (and all problems it can cause), but always the static
version libgcc.a.
