Bingo.  That demonstrates conclusively that this isn't a Python bug.

Please repeat the test like so:

$ CC="gcc -v" sh test-dynload

Send the complete output, the result of "uname -a", and the script
itself to both gcc-bugs@gcc.gnu.org and bug-binutils@gnu.org.  And I
think we can stop bothering python-dev.
