I am having a bizarre linker problem with the simple program I wrote with 
protobuf. When I run the make command I see tons of linker errors like the 

user.pb.o:(.rodata._ZTIN4misc4UserE[_ZTIN4misc4UserE]+0x10): undefined 
reference to `typeinfo for google::protobuf::Message'
undefined reference to `vtable for __cxxabiv1::__si_class_type_info'
undefined reference to `typeinfo for google::protobuf::Message'
user.pb.o:(.eh_frame+0x38b): undefined reference to `__gxx_personality_v0'
collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status
make: *** [hello_protobuf] Error 1

However, the C++ example in the protobuf package builds and runs fine. Here 
is the output of the pkgconfig command:

$ pkg-config --cflags --libs protobuf
-pthread -I/usr/local/include  -pthread -L/usr/local/lib -lprotobuf -lz 
$ protoc --version
libprotoc 2.4.1
I am using version 2.4.1. I believe something is wrong with my Makefile. 
Can anyone help?

I tried to attach the source and Makefile but probably attachment is 
disabled in the group. Here are my file contents:

package misc;

message User {
    required string username = 1;
    required int32 id = 2;
    optional string email = 3;

    message FullName {
        required string firstName = 1;
        optional string middleName = 2;
        required string lastName = 3;

    optional FullName fullName = 4;;

#include <iostream>
#include "user.pb.h"

int main(int argc, char **argv) {
    misc::User u;


    std::cout << "Username: " << u.username() << " and ID: " << u.id() << 

    return 0;

all: hello_protobuf

CC = g++
DEBUG = -g
LIBS = `pkg-config --cflags --libs protobuf`

protoc_middleman: user.proto
    protoc --cpp_out=. user.proto
    @touch protoc_middleman

OBJS = hello_protobuf.o user.pb.o

hello_protobuf: $(OBJS) protoc_middleman
    pkg-config --cflags protobuf  # fails if protobuf is not installed
    $(CC) $(LFLAGS) $(OBJS) -o hello_protobuf

    \rm *.o hello_protobuf
