Of course, like

_ForwardIterator std::__uninitialized_copy_aux(_InputIterator,
_InputIterator, _ForwardIterator, __false_type)


_ForwardIterator std::__uninitialized_fill_n_aux(_ForwardIterator, _Size,
const _Tp&, __false_type)


static void* __gnu_cxx::__pool_alloc<__threads, __inst>::allocate(size_t)

and others from .tcc files (which you meant presumably with "external"
ones?) like

std::vector<_Tp, _Alloc>& std::vector<_Tp, _Alloc>::operator=(const
std::vector<_Tp, _Alloc>&)

Of couse. I just get a lot of the above in my inner computation loop and
am not very happy about this ;) gcc3.3 either could inline them and then
optimize them away, or not generate them in the first place.
