It instructs pkgsrc to build packages against the gcc*-libs packages,
otherwise there is a full dependency on the main gcc* packages.  It's
basically an optimisation when delivering binary packages to users, as
they only need the smaller gcc*-libs packages to satisfy dependencies
on GCC libraries.

On SmartOS where we set this, it means users only need a 24MB
gcc49-libs package instead of a 339MB gcc49 package, cutting down our
image sizes considerably.
