You can also relink the with the static gcc lib and it
will statically link in all the symbols it needs:

Find libgcc.a:
/usr/local/bin/gcc -print-libgcc-file-name

cd <srcdir>/modules/experimental

ld -G -o mod_auth_digets.slo \
	mod_auth_digest.lo \

cp <installdir>/modules

I haven't seen this issue with newer GCC's.
