This gcc-specific issue can happen in various places (e.g., 1.3's
mod_access on AIX).  It is a losing battle to modify web server code
to work around this instead of providing the ability to link libgcc
into the right places.

If you add libgcc.a into any DSO, wouldn't that take care of the
issue?  (does the SH_LIBS variable allow you to specify extra
libraries that should be linked into DSOs?)
