[PATCH] Pass --allow-multiple-definition to the linker when compiling libgcc_post_upgrade none

Description Peter Robinson 2011-04-18 18:11:18 EDT
gcc 4.4.5 on dist-f13 compiles fine.

gcc-4.5.1-4 and gcc-4.5.1-5 on dist-f14 fails at the excerpt below. There are no later versions in dist-f14. I've not tried upstream 4.5.[23].

[PATCH] Pass --allow-multiple-definition to the linker when compiling libgcc_post_upgrade


Linking libgcc_post_upgrade fails because there are multiple definitions
of __libc_start_main, __libc_csu_fini and __libc_csu_init. These functions
are defined in libgcc_post_upgrade.c and in libc.a.

From "man ld" on --allow-multiple-definition:
> Normally when a symbol is defined multiple times, the linker will
> report a fatal error. These options allow multiple definitions and the
> first definition will be used.

I do not think this should be a final solution, but at least it makes it
possible to build gcc on ARM.

gcc-4.6.0-9 doesn't have libgcc_post_upgrade any longer, being replaced by <lua> scriptlet.  SO this problem is gone in F15 updates testing and F16.
