Without -static-libgcc you'll still have to figure out which archives
make up libgcc.  ld won't do that for you.

Either way I think that unless fpc can be built with the same
toolchain as the C libs you're linking with there may be too many
things that can go wrong.  E.g. I'm getting 0-bit reloc in dll errors
with the external linker.
