  Note that this problem does not pertain to the MS-Windows port of
  Emacs, since it doesn't use the preprocessor to generate Makefiles.
+ * Building Emacs with a system compiler fails during link stage.
+ This can happen if some of the libraries linked into Emacs were built
+ with GCC, but Emacs itself is being linked with a compiler other than
+ GCC.  Object files compiled with GCC might need some helper functions
+ from libgcc.a, the library which comes with GCC, but the system
+ compiler does not instruct the linker to search libgcc.a during the
+ link stage.
+ A solution is to link with GCC, like this:
+       make CC=gcc
  * Building the MS-Windows port with Cygwin GCC can fail.
  Emacs may not build using recent Cygwin builds of GCC, such as Cygwin
