(I want to make sure we are on the same brainwave here)
This is not related to reducing the command line that mklibs issues to
invoke gcc (that will run the linker) a.k.a. the modifications we made
on mklibs before I decided to just copy all the libs (before
mklibs-copy was available on ppc), right?

In other words, somebody managed to regenerate the segfault I got, but
while trying to add the symbols one by one, or even other symbols, but
with a command that was significantly smaller? (Was this with the
patch you proposed for mklibs, the one related to using some files, of
some sort?)
