You must have copied libgcc.so from /usr/lib to /lib; or have been
very lucky.  If you do ldd /sbin/fsck, then this program depends on
libgcc.  When you boot, then root is read only, and /usr is not
mounted; so how can fsck work.  Done this already, system stops dead.

I did not put any links in /usr/lib; just moved libgcc to /lib.

I hate this idea though, you would have to do this every time that you
upgrade gcc.

Either we must go for a one partition choice; or find a way to force
the libraries into /lib
