How to fix „Cannot find crt1.o“ on Ubuntu

Problem:

You’re trying to compile something (e.g. using GCC) on Ubuntu, but you get an error message similar to this one:

/usr/bin/ld: error: cannot open crt1.o: No such file or directory
/usr/bin/ld: error: cannot open crti.o: No such file or directory
/usr/bin/ld: error: cannot open crtn.o: No such file or directory

Solution:

Instead of make, use

LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu make
