Thanks for reporting more info on this issue.

|  a reference to a function sinf.
|  This function even exists and is exported from stubs.o:
|  turing# nm sparc-sun-solaris2.9/libstdc++-v3/libmath/stubs.o  |grep sinf
|  00000714 T sinf
|  However, in the symbol sinf is private:


  Do we have infrastructure to export symbols based on target
configurations?  If not, does telling linker-map.gnu to export
non-existing symbols an error?  If not, is it documented to work as
