Apparently they are now a separate download, which should be installed  
automatically the first time you try to use one of the command line  
tools: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/17066849/command-line-tools-for-new-10-9-osx-for-ruby-gems

If you did not get a pop-up as described in that thread, maybe you are  
using some kind of partial install of the command line tools. Can you  
try downloading them separately and installing them, to verify that  
there is still no globally installed crt1.o afterwards?

It's rather strange that this doesn't include any directory containing  
crt1.o, unless clang automatically searches other directories relative  
to that library directory. Can you check your environment variables  
(just type "set" in a terminal window) to see whether it contains any  
variables with a path to an SDK?
