The rules for building libgcc_s are quite simple, and are completely
contained within one single makefile rule, which is brought in from
some target-specific makefile fragment.

The problems we're having with libgcc_s are philosophical wrt how it
should be partitioned and used.  There are zero problems with the
actual construction of the library.
