Hi Ian,

Thanks for the explanation of the error. Now just want understand the
debugging process on how I can fix this issue. Following is some more

- libx.o is compiled by the current version of gcc (4.3.2) 
- If the above object is removed from the build, I no longer see the
eh_frame error.
- Is there any C++ implementation problem, that would cause an issue in the
- Note that all objects use the same compiler but only inclusion of certain
objects cause this error.

Please let me know if there is any other information I can provide to better
help diagnose the cause of this error.

Thanks again
