In 4.2 there is no libgcc/, instead there's a 
generating the file. Given that it's generating a value and assigning it 
to vis_hide a few lines earlier, I have no idea if the suggested fix 
(trying to pass through a value from autoconf?) is relevant to this 
version of the code.

The real problem is I have no way to reproduce the failure yet. The 
comment that it occurs building musl for mips seems useful, I'll try 
that. But it's kinda hard to fix a failure I've never seen fail...
