gcc -pg and ld error, "cannot find -lgcc_p"

On 7.2-RELEASE-p4, I have a very complicated C program:

	int main(int argc, char** argv)
		return 5;

I can compile this program (cc example.c -o example) and it compiles
and runs fine. However, if I try to enable profiling of this program by
compiling it as "cc example.c -pg -o example" I get an error:

	/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lgcc_p

Is there some port/package that I'm missing? A configuration somewhere? Why
is ld stumbling on the profiling flag?
