For shared libraries, i use -pg -fno-omit-frame-pointer -fPIC -ggdb2 -O2

The option -fno-omit-frame-pointer is obligatory for -pg or -ggdb2,
and -fPIC for shared libraries.

And i use gprof --brief

For more information, to see

ld -o myprog /lib/gcrt0.o myprog.o utils.o -lc_p    (info gcc, Ctrl-S -lc_p)

I never probed  running a profiled program with profiled shared C++ libraries,
i only probed it with profiled static C++ libraries.
