1. This doesn't address the problem with shared libraries re-exporting
   symbols from libgcc.a.

2. This means that one has to rebuild glibc whenever stuff is added to

Richard Henderson anticipated just the opposite: Make an
auxiliary filter for, such that the libgcc functionality
that's currently included in becomes a "servicable component".
