Package: libc6-prof
Version: 2.7-18
Severity: important

$ cat myprog.c
int main(void)
  return 0;
$ gcc -g -pg -o myprog myprog.c -static-libgcc -lc_p
In function `__elf_machine_runtime_setup':
(.text+0xd56): undefined reference to `_dl_prof_resolve'
In function `__elf_machine_runtime_setup':
(.text+0xd5a): undefined reference to `_dl_prof_resolve'
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

Note the gcc command line above is an exact copy of the example in
README.Debian, but it doesn't work. I can't find a way to get this
_dl_prof_resolve linked in. nm /lib/lib* /usr/lib/lib* finds it only in

I haven't made much of an effort to find out what _dl_prof_resolve is
supposed to do, but I did notice that it's defined in
sysdeps/powerpc/powerpc32/dl-trampoline.S, inside #ifndef PROF, which makes
me wonder, is that backwards? A function with "prof" in its name, that's
defined everywhere but the profiling library? Could I fix this by taking the
'n' out of #ifndef?
