E.g. ideally we'd drop libpthread.a, librt.a, libstdc++.a,
libboost*.a, all GUI libs that have also *.so libs, etc.
libstdc++.a must stay in Fedora Core. libstdc++ is not compatible AT ALL
across versions, and there are _many_. g++ has not learned or implemented
a stable ABI (application binary interface); the "name mangling" to encode
types is not even stable yet.
In fact, the best advice is that libstdc++ MUST be linked static
for any "portable" program. The mechnanism for doing so isn't
obvious; '-Wl,-Bstatic -lstdc++ -Wl,-Bdynamic' is not sufficient.
ln -s `g++ --print-file-name=libstdc++.a` .
g++ -m386 -L. file.cpp
Even libgcc_s has a couple more years before it can be considered stable.
