Does the work you are doing for AIX regarding the collect2 patch:

have any resolution to a previous reply you gave me about problems to do
with shared libraries and AIX?

Basically we're seeing a lot of additional code bloat because the linker
doesn't seem to be garbage collecting any code we produce using g++. We also
want to use shared libaries but are currently unable because we use

I'd be interested in any patches that you have - although since our
development is safety related we wouldn't easily be able to use it
ultimately unless it became part of the mainstream gcc releases.
