...except if -nostdlib is given to gcc, which is the case in grub2. For the 
bootloader part at least, grub-emu is another question.
And there is an except to this except: If -lgcc is specified it will be used, 
and it is for the following archs, as far as I can see:
 - powerpc-ieee1275
 - i386-linuxbios
 - i386-ieee1275

So half the supported archs don't need libgcc, I think it's enough to try 
avoiding that dependency.
