This is desired and correct behavior as far as I know.

Shared libraries should not contain undefined references to libgcc code -- 
they should have copies of the relavent code.

This should be safe -- you should find out why the linker thinks those
symbols need to be included from libgcc since they should have been
satisfied by the libstdc++ library.
