gcc 4.1.0 compile log
gcc-4.0.2 also compiles properly with binutils-2.16.1 and other packages from
RHEL4U3 (e.g. gcc-3.4.5-2).
This issue is on Red Hat Engineering's list of planned work items
for the upcoming Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.4 release. Engineering
resources have been assigned and barring unforeseen circumstances, Red
Hat intends to include this item in the 4.4 release.
This regression seems to be caused by the
patch, added to fix #168316, IT#77962.
I should note that what libstdc++-v3 does here is very fragile and haven't
been ever supported, only happens to work with some ld versions (and doesn't
work with most other ld versions).
One object has versioned symbol (in this case _ZNSt11char_traitsIcE2eqERKcS2_)
@@GLIBCXX_3.4.5 and @GLIBCXX_3.4, another one exports the same symbol (weak)
unversioned. The reason why this works e.g. in gcc4 RHEL4 rpms is that
in RHEL4 gcc4 rpms compatibility.o (which has the versioned symbol) comes last,
while in upstream it comes before string-inst.o which defines the weak symbol.
