Unexpected presence of __eprintf in libgcc.a when using newlib


Hi everybody,

When playing with a toolchain built with --with-newlib switch, I recently noticed that libgcc.a includes __eprintf among its objects. However, gcc/doc/install.texi states that --with-newlib switches "causes @code{__eprintf} to be omitted from @file{libgcc.a} on the assumption that it will be provided by @samp{newlib}. And indeed, newlib provides __eprintf. Was the logic to omit __eprintf when newlib is used removed at some point for some reason or is it a bug?

Best regards,

Thomas
