bugs building stuff.. somewhere.. (was: back to gcc under pre-R5)

As a belated update to my own post:
I've finally gotten this to work.
"gcc -static -Wl,--relax ... -o binary" makes this link fine with
egcs-1.1.2 and glibc-2.1. The resulting binary runs on pre-R5, R4,
and mklinux DR3. I just wish I had a non-Mac to test it on.
