And that is my do I "opt-out" of these things when building?
There seems to be a lot of problems caused by this right now, and I'm basically
doing it for some functionality I don't need.

So, my base question is, can I set come configuration options to get gcc to
compile and behave as a bare-bones, text-in/text-out compiler that generates
target assembly code?  Then, can I also get a linker that makes me have to
specify what I need in order to link?

Because, for the purpose of what I'm doing, I don't NEED threaded support.
I don't NEED shared library support.  I'm compiling this on a box, and putting
the code in an embedded system for which I will be writing libraries (including
base C functionality).  All it needs to do is give me assembly code which I can
run the linker on myself.

Now, my problems with getting the linker working...that's a separate issue
(which I'm assuming at this point is a configuration screw-up on my part). :)
