It is sometimes useful to have the C++ standard library linked into the
assembly when compiling clang, particularly when distributing a compiler
onto systems that don't have a copy of stdlibc++ or libc++ installed.
This functionality should work with either GCC or Clang as the host
compiler, though statically linking libc++ (as may be required for
licensing purposes) is only possible if the host compiler is Clang with
a copy of libc++ available.
