Yes. If the compiler is configured with libgcc-math then it should know
to link against it. If not, it should know not to try linking against it.

Indeed, not needing -ftree-vectorize at link time would be better. Even
better would be the general identification of which GCC runtime libraries
are needed listed under "User interface" at
<http://gcc.gnu.org/projects/beginner.html> - but that's a separate
