I recall a number of dynamic loaders will disregard LD_LIBRARY_PATH
when looking for dependencies of shared libraries.  This is one of the
reasons why I recommend using libtool for libgcc: then libtool will
know how to arrange for libg2c.la to find libgcc_s.so in the build
tree, and then, after they're installed, the installed copy of
libg2c.so will find libgcc_s.so in the install tree.

#include usual caveats about encoding search paths into shared
 libraries, and why they're good for many and bad for many others
