Its a known issue with the way libpthread dlopen()s libgcc. In some
ways, the pthread library should really RRECOMMEND libgcc, however
since its part of the main glibc package, that would mean libgcc
effectively everywhere.

Its only used by a limited subset of the pthread functionality so there
are cases you don't need it.
