clang vs gcc shouldn't really break this.  What undefined symbols do you see
in the nm of sim_calls.o?

Looking at sim/ppc/Makefile.in, it only references CC, not CXX, so I would not
be surprised if it compiles as C without mangled symbols giving the error you
have.  I think 7.12 can still be built as C, though you might need to use a
configure flag to do so?  If you see non-mangled symbols from sim_calls.o, I
would try building 7.12 as plain C to see if that fixes it for now.
