Ok, it's added.

Sure ;) But don't spend too much time on it. Ask yourself the question
is it worth it. It's just one single library and apparently gcc comes
with one and binutils comes with one. Both have the same name, but are
not compatible with eachother for some reason, so I don't think you want
to have it dynamically linked. Else either gcc or binutils might not
work anymore.
