Known thing. Part of C++ support which was earlier in libgcc.a is now
no more there. One can link with libsupcxx.a which contains only this
stuff moved out of libgcc.a). Anyway the same stuff is also in
libstdcxx.a so one can use that. The difference is with dynamic linking
where it's supported (why to have to require libstdc++ when C++ standard
program library is not used).

Anyway one can try to compile source using options
	-fno-rtti -fno-exceptions
and in this case maybe one can avoid use of one of libstdcxx.a or
libsupcxx.a

One more thing is that using libstdcxx.a requires to link with libm.a
more often than with previous GCC versions. gpp.exe does that
automatically.
