collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

This if gmp/mpfr for the target, E.G. for the compiler running on the target.
_IO_getc is a glibc specific feature, so it seems like the gmp build
system gets confused when cross compiling and target=host and ends up
using the host compiler / include files.

I'll try to track it down.
