I assumed that the patches were attempting to turn on LFS and that was the

tcc tries to be a gcc close, so it should provide identical results to the
gcc build on the same machine, modulus the large file problem I mentioned
which involves disabling some things from glibc due to _GNU_SOURCE not
being defined.

I'll have to look into that and see if that can help.
