There is a nice wiki-page describing GCC that also has a section for macOS users:

It may have some good hints to fix this problem.

When trying to build GCC from source on a Mac OS system, we get the following error.

libtool: compile:  /myid/reproducible-paper/build/dependencies/gcc-build/./gcc/xgcc -B/myid/reproducible-paper/build/dependencies/gcc-build/./gcc/ -B/myid/reproducible-paper/build/dependencies/installed/x86_64-apple-darwin17.7.0/bin/ -B/myid/reproducible-paper/build/dependencies/installed/x86_64-apple-darwin17.7.0/lib/ -isystem /myid/reproducible-paper/build/dependencies/installed/x86_64-apple-darwin17.7.0/include -isystem /myid/reproducible-paper/build/dependencies/installed/x86_64-apple-darwin17.7.0/sys-include /myid/reproducible-paper/build/dependencies/gcc-8.3.0/libobjc/thr.c -c -I. -I/myid/reproducible-paper/build/dependencies/gcc-8.3.0/libobjc -g -O2 -W -Wall -Wwrite-strings -Wstrict-prototypes -DIN_GCC -DIN_TARGET_LIBS -fno-strict-aliasing -fexceptions -I/myid/reproducible-paper/build/dependencies/gcc-8.3.0/libobjc/../gcc -I/myid/reproducible-paper/build/dependencies/gcc-8.3.0/libobjc/../gcc/config -I../.././gcc -I/myid/reproducible-paper/build/dependencies/gcc-8.3.0/libobjc/../libgcc -I../libgcc -I/myid/reproducible-paper/build/dependencies/gcc-8.3.0/libobjc/../include -o thr.o >/dev/null 2>&1

It is apparently because the final call to `g++' is using the host's compiler (clang which doesn't support `-static-libgcc'). This is strange, because during the configuration step, checks if the compiler is GNU and it says yes! But probably that is because its checking the temporary `/myid/reproducible-paper/build/dependencies/gcc-build/./gcc/xgcc'.
