There are a few of these ...

$ grep /usr/lib/gcc /usr/bin/libtool
sys_lib_search_path_spec="/usr/lib/gcc/x86_64-redhat-linux/4.7.1 /usr/lib64 /lib64 "
compiler_lib_search_dirs="/usr/lib/gcc/x86_64-redhat-linux/4.7.1 /usr/lib/gcc/x86_64-redhat-linux/4.7.1/../../../../lib64 /lib/../lib64 /usr/lib/../lib64 /usr/lib/gcc/x86_64-redhat-linux/4.7.1/../../.."
predep_objects="/usr/lib/gcc/x86_64-redhat-linux/4.7.1/../../../../lib64/crti.o /usr/lib/gcc/x86_64-redhat-linux/4.7.1/crtbeginS.o"

But it looks like it'd be possible to replace 4.7.1 with the partial
output of `gcc --version`.
