Strange, you must have a different gcc 4.8 than me, in my case it always uses GOT:

        call    _ZN5OuterC1Ev at PLT
        leal    __dso_handle at GOTOFF(%ebx), %esi
        addl    $12, %esp
        pushl   %esi
        pushl   %edi
        pushl   _ZN5OuterD1Ev at GOT(%ebx)
        call    __cxa_atexit at PLT

This is the lang/gcc48 port, btw.
