I think that libgcc is the only thing you can "unintentionally" end up
dependent on - it's a special case.
My understanding was that gomp and mpfr are used by GCC, not by its
output code(?) The C language doesn't natively support
arbitrary-precision arithmetic yet...
If you build with gcc -fzany-library-dependent-feature (for example),
you can probably expect gcc to try and link in
-lzany-library-dependent-feature, but I think it's reasonable in that
case to expect that the user knows what he's doing.
Someone who attempts to build a bare-metal project using such features
is probably doing the wrong thing in most cases.
Does that sound reasonable?
