Re: for 3.4-bi 20021213 (experimental) testsuite on


Dave,
On the otherhand, it clear HP doesn't like weak symbols in that they
don't provide compiler and assembler support for them.  It's always been
a puzzle to me that libc contains weak symbols, and yet there is no
support in the tools for weak binding or for visibility.

Nathan, I don't think the current code in profile.c is acceptable, but
I'm not an ELF standards expert.  As I said before, I don't want to disable
SUPPORTS_WEAK.
I think elf specifies weak symbols default to zero.
http://www.tachyonsoft.com/elf.pdf says so on page 1-18 2nd bullet. That is
an i86 base document though - I couldn't google a plain elf spec.

Anyhow, it appears I'm abusing SUPPORTS_WEAK anyway, and should only enable
that on stage 2 builds, I guess we (that'd be me) should work around the
problem.
