Sorry, I posted the wrong lib names there. 
And it is libOSLib32.a and -lOSLib32 that I am using, the same one
that comes with gcc4 softfloat download.
Now that you've told me that it /should/ be OK with -static, I will 
continue looking for the cause.
I know that it is linking with -lOSLib32 as I was getting a linking
error until I put the libOSLib32a inside !SharedLib.libs.lib
I'll have to look closer at my use of -static.
