You didn't mention what platform you are using. Purify has big
problems with gcc >= 2.8 on many platforms, in particular with dwarf
exception handling.

Rational is beta-testing a purify version that supports the most
recent gcc right now, and it fixes a lot of problems. You'll probably
have to contact Rational for details.

There is also a problem with non-pic code, I suggest to link
statically in case you've been using shared library. This is true in
particular for libstdc++.
