Getting gconf running with gcc-arm-none-eabi-7-2017-q4-major

The MacOS gcc compiler appears to be missing the proper linker libraries to enable gconf for the purposes of profiling ARM embedded code on MacOS.

I am following these instructions:

ftp.gnu.org/.../gprof_2.html

I have enabled the -pg flag on the compile (makefile CFLAGS), as well as the linker (ld, LDFLAGS), but I am now progressing to a step that appears to be compiler specific.

The version of the compiler and toolchain is gcc-arm-none-eabi-7-2017-q4-major, I am looking for the "libc_p.a" file which should then allow me to enable gconf profiling.  Is this provided in newer version of the compiler ?  Does this mean no one has ever profiled target ARM code from a Mac ??
