"__throw_exception_again;" should be used in place of "throw;" to rethrow
an active exception.  With -fno-exceptions __throw_exception_again is
replaced with an empty string, which is not what's wanted.

To throw a particular exception (rather than rethrowing an active
exception object) use the appropriate function, which in this case is
__throw_runtime_error(const char*)
i.e.
      __throw_runtime_error("could not initialize semaphore");
