A number of GCC developers who already do this.

I previously had problem on AIX with an earlier release of GCC that
was built with Graphite because one of the dependent libraries used
C++, but GCC was not linked with libstdc++ at the time. The only way
to break the C++ dependency of the library separate from GCC was
through shared libraries.

If one can link GCC against static libraries, it definitely simplifies
things and avoids potential conflicts with multiple versions of GCC
installed.
