        Description

        We need to upgrade the compiler we use to build JavaFX with on Linux to gcc-7.x in order to support the next WebKit upgrade and also to match a recent compiler toolchain upgrade by the JDK.

        In support of this, we need to enable static linking of libgcc and libstdc++ and fix a couple issues that this uncovered.

        Note that when linking WebKit we already statically link libstdc++ (but not libgcc). For the other native libraries we do not statically link anything.
