Note that ld.so (the dynamic linker) is effectively a shared library,
so you might be using shared libraries and not even known it.

Right.  __register_frame_info should not be in a 2.7 based library.

Unlikely -- the behavior of egcs "ld" calling back to /usr/bin/ld
is exactly what we expect.  The "egcs ld" is actually just a
front end to the system linker.

It might be wise to use -Wl,-v -Wl,-t on the link line to try and
get more debugging information from the linker.
