Description of Problem:
When using gcc (either 2.96-81 or 2.96-85) to compile even a simple C 
test program against glibc-profile (2.2.2-10), the command "gcc -o test 
test.c -lc_p" hangs, while the ld process consumes 99% CPU time.  Even 
the most simple "int main(void){return 0;}" test.c exhibits this 
behavior, and the presence or absence of the "-pg" flag (I admit, this is 
my first time using gprof in years) doesn't make a difference.

How Reproducible: Every time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. echo "int main(void){return 0;}" > test.c
2. gcc -o test -pg test.c -lc_p &
3. top

Actual Results:

You're trying to link in 2 different glibc's (one statical libc_p.a, one
shared library).
This cannot work.
Use gcc -o test -static -profile -pg test.c
(-profile will ensure libc_p.a is linked in).
