Thanks for the report. I just fixed that in CVS. The problem here
is that we have to take several targets into account, some of them
using a labe lprefix, some of them not. I applied a patch which
intÂÂÂÂÂ _EXFUN(strerror_r,(int, char *, size_t)) __asm__ (__ASMNAME ("__xpg_strerror_r"));
The __ASMNAME macro is now defined in cdefs.h. I tested to build
a testcase which calls the POSIX version of strerror_r and it now
works fine. Well, there was a small bug in __xpg_strerror_r, too,
but that should be fixed in CVS as well. I'll create a new developer
snapshot later today.
