0 is ok as these are defined in libgcc_s not libstdc++

i'd try to compile and run (gcc foo.c -lgcc_s)

void _Unwind_Resume_or_Rethrow();
int main()

(it would segfault at runtime but the point is to see
if the symbol lookup succeeds, if not, you can debug
this easier than libstdc++, if yes, then compare
and see what's different)

the code is in ldso/dynlink.c
