Why exactly do you need that?
What exact library needs the functions from libgcc_eh.a?
There shouldn't be any these days (__register_*/__frame_state_for etc.
functions should come from sysdeps/generic on arches which need them,
_Unwind_* come from unwind*.c).
IMHO both:

# Force the backward compatibility EH functions to be linked. += -u __register_frame

in Makerules and -lgcc_eh in Makeconfig should go.
