Copying libgcc_s and libstdc++ into the build path is known to be required 
(this applies to both native and cross testing).  See the list of 
architecture-independent issues at 
<https://sourceware.org/glibc/wiki/Release/2.21>, where it references 
<https://sourceware.org/ml/libc-alpha/2012-04/msg01014.html>.
