After googling a bit at gnu.org I came across a thread that might
be relevant. They were saying that libstdc++.a will fail to link
if it was not compiled with -fPIC.
I'm speculating here because I'm no expert, but perhaps if you do
#readelf -h libstdc++.a and look for Type: REL (Relocatable) it
may tell us something.
I hope that one of you experts will correct me if I'm wrong.
