You understand it a bit wrong, but your conclusions are correct. libgcc
in base is not stripped in any way and is supposed to be identical to
one coming from upstream. As long as upstream maintains backward
compatibility, their library should be a perfect replacement for ours.
There was a time period while FreeBSD used dynamic unwind into search
using dl_iterate_phdr while upstream GCCs didn't, but that was fixed by
GCC folks switching GCC to use dl_iterate_phdr on Linux and FreeBSD by
default quite while ago. I am not aware of any other incompatibilities
at this time.
