My goal is to make it work, with a brick if necessary. This includes 
making it all work under musl.

I'm already patching the libgcc.a build to produce libgcc_eh.a at 
inappropriate times and shoehorning in symbols that problably shouldn't 
go in there. (And then ccwrap is shoehorning in libgcc_eh.a when it 
pulls in libgcc.a.)

My position on the --disable-shared gcc being subtly broken is that it's 
a bug in gcc I should fix (at least until replacing one more FSF project 
with something better). Generally if I can reproduce a problem and get 
enough time to work on it, I can fix it. I just wanted to make sure that 
my failure to reproduce this issue wasn't because I subtly screwed up. :)
