I have found that the problem is in some way related to math inlines.  If
the build is done with __NO_MATH_INLINES defined, then Fix.o contains all
the required weak defines.  There are no testsuite failures with your
version -20000907 if I add -D__NO_MATH_INLINES to CXXFLAGS in the Makefile's.

The math inlines are output at optimisations above O0.  If the preprocessing
is done at -O0 and the compilation at -O3, the weak defines are there.  The
other way around doesn't work.

I have been poking around in cc1plus trying to find why the weak defines
aren't getting output when the math inlines are present.  If somebody more
familiar with code can suggest some places to look, it would be helpful.
