It's probably worth revisiting why we even support this.  I don't
think it actually works, given that the libraries are installed into
different places, and I don't remember why it was added in the first

For our gcc9 packages I dropped it, though we always enable
USE_PKGSRC_GCC_RUNTIME anyway.  It's likely that when I committed

I should have made the non-runtime case avoid the -libs package, and
it's been cargo-culted around ever since.
