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
does that:

  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.

Thanks again,
