Hi Gang,

I'm having an unforeseen issue.  Hopefully I'm just doing something wrong.

I'm on gcc 4.5.2.  I started with a fresh build tree. I'm passing in --enable-__cxa_atexit:

  configure \
    "--with-gmp=${PUBLIC_BASE}" \
    "--with-mpfr=${PUBLIC_BASE}" \
    "--with-mpc=${PUBLIC_BASE}" \
    "--disable-nls" \
    "--enable-threads=aix" \
    "--with-libiconv-prefix=/usr" \
    "--enable-__cxa_atexit" \   <<<<<

config.log confirms this:

  $ /usr/work/src/gcc-4.5.2/configure --prefix=/gsa/ausgsa/projects/r/ruby --with-gmp=/gsa/ausgsa/projects/r/ruby --with-mpfr=/gsa/ausgsa/projects/r/ruby --with-mpc=/gsa/ausgsa/projects/r/ruby --disable-nls --enable-threads=aix --with-libiconv-prefix=/usr --enable-__cxa_atexit --enable-languages=c,c++

But when I look at

nm -Bx powerpc-ibm-aix6.1.0.0/pthread/libstdc++-v3/src/.libs/future.o 

There is still a reference to atexit.  mt_allocator.o also has a reference to atexit.  It is coming from the destructor.

        .line   60
        bl .__cxa_guard_release
        lwz 3,LC..20(2)
        bl .atexit

If I explicitly add the -fuse-cxa-atexit, then it uses cxa_atexit.  I got the idea (perhaps mistaken) that the config time option flipped the default.

I will continue this tomorrow but thought (hoped) someone might have a helpful suggestion.

Thank you,
