System: Linux decomino 2.2.18 #1 Sun Jan 7 21:04:55 UTC 2001 i686 unknown
Architecture: i686

host: i686-pc-linux-gnu
build: i686-pc-linux-gnu
target: i686-pc-linux-gnu
configured with: ../gcc-cvs/configure --prefix=/opt/gcc/snapshot --disable-shared --enable-threads=posix --with-system-zlib

libgcc-std.ver includes:

  # ??? Some of these are for `-a', which ought to die.

  # ??? Symbols that perhaps unused should be nuked.

If these symbols appear in a released shared libgcc, we need to
support them as part of the libgcc ABI for ever.  Thus, we must
resolve, before GCC 3.0 is released, whether each of these symbols
should be part of the libgcc ABI or not.


Want to get rid of one of these symbols after GCC 3.0 but be unable to
since it's been fixed in the ABI.


Identify the purpose of each symbol listed above, and either document
it or remove it.
