C++ binaries compiled / linked with gcc-3.2.2 depend on libgcc_s which
is only build as a shared library. If you can tell me how to link the C++
runtime statically with gcc 3.x, I'd be very happy to hear about it.

To give you a start, here is what I am trying:

$ cat conftest.C
#include <iostream.h>
int main()
  cout <<"worksok\n";

$ c++ conf.C  -nodefaultlibs -Wl,-Bstatic -lstdc++ -Wl,-Bdynamic -lm -lgcc_s -lgcc -lc -lgcc_s -lgcc
$ ldd a.out
libgcc_s.so.1 => /software/oss/Development/gcc-3.2.2/lib/libgcc_s.so.1 (0x40043000)

If you can somehow modify the c++ command to work without that -lgcc_s,
that would be great. With gcc-2.x, I can just omit -lgcc_s, but the problem
is gcc-3.
