I have no explanation for this behaviour. If you run the link

This in itself doesn't prove that your program was linked with
libgcc_s.so. It may be the case that your program was linked with
something which uses uses libgcc_s.so.
To see whether your program was linked with libgcc_s.so, you need to
do something like "objdump -p FILE | grep NEEDED". If you see
libgcc_s.so on that list, then your program was linked with
Gotcha. It's not.
ldd, on the other hand, does the transitive closure. That is, ldd
will print any shared library which was used by your program or by any
shared library which your program linked against, recursively.
Yes, there is a /usr/rcf/lib/libgcc_s.so that MUST remain where it is.
I simply don't want to link to it with my *other* (production) GCC.
Actually, I was asking whether you had a libgcc.so file somewhere.
That would be another way to get a dependency on libgcc_s.so: if -lgcc
causes the linker to find libgcc.so, and that file has a DT_SONAME of

Thanks again for the help so far, Ian.
