Ahh, that was the flag I was looking for!  Tried it and the errors go away, except that the linker now fails (without even an error message).  Which makes sense considering all the libs it is trying to link against were almost certainly compiled with the non-fragile ABI...so I guess I should have seen that one coming.

Thanks for the pointer, learn something new every day!
