It was added when I was trying to get the linux RC builds to work with 
gcc-4.2.  makesdna either would not compile without setting some of the 
link flags (IIRC it was "-static-libgcc").  This might have been before 
I was building my own gcc-4.2 for releases instead of using the distro 
versions; I've just tried building a RC and there was no problem, so 
that part of the patch can be reverted for now (I haven't tested with a 
32-bit chroot I was working with, it's not completely set up right now).

I discussed with Nathan on IRC and we didn't see a problem with adding 
this.  Obviously we were wrong.  He reports that BF_DEBUG=1 and 
msvc9+scons works.
