It will occur on any target where binds_local_p is false for the
function that does not throw exceptions.  That is target-dependent, but,
in general, it will fail with -fpic of -fPIC.  The reason is that the
default implementation of binds_local_p considers global functions not
to be locally bound in shared libraries (which it determines by checking
flag_shlib) and flag_shlib is generally set if flag_pic is true.
