gcc --version

libtool --version (GNU libtool) 1.4.3 (1.922.2.111 2002/10/23 02:54:36)

I have spent about a week trying to link my application on RH 9.0.  The
application in written in C++ so it links the std c++ lib.  It also links
to C libraries (argtable and libxml2).  I would like to link those
libraries in statically so I don't have to ship and install them with my

In my first attempt to do this I passed -all-static to libtool.  This
seemed to work except I got some strange errors about gethostbyname not
being statically linked.  After more research I learned about NSS, and
decided that linking glibc statically wasn't such a good idea.

Ok so now I want a static std c++ lib, static thirdparty libs, and dynamic
glibc.  Passing -static to libtool seemed to do nothing.  So, I am now
passing -Wl, -static to libtool.  I now get the following strange error:

/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lgcc_s

hmm ok

find /usr/ -name *libgcc_s*

Seems to be there.

I've seen it mentioned that this is a bug in g++.  Is that true?  I am at
my wits end here.  Any suggestions?
