Testcase: the port multimedia/webcamoid with added lines:
> USE_GCC=yes

When the executable runs, it crashes with this stack while the plugin is dynamically loaded:

The crash occurs during the initialization of this static object:
> 74	  static ios_base::Init __ioinit;

It calls std::ios_base::Init::Init() which has likely been called during the main static constructors invocation, because it generally prints something from the executable.
It looks like the constructor is called twice.
The same code works fine when built with clang.
