ok, well I found the symbol (defined) symbol in libhttpd.ep and libhttpd.so.
I went further and found out that it was linked incorrectrly vbthey get to be defined there? I looked
again at the linking statement, and indeed it was ld:
ld -G ....
I change this to
gcc -G ...
and it works fine..
So I guess my question is why the need for a separate linker? Why don't
you always use gcc instead of ld and have it get passed to the right linker?
Why even support binutils as a separate package?
