very odd linker error GCC ld 3.4.6

Thu Nov 16 18:09:00 GMT 2006


Code that has been compiling and linking fine for a while now has suddenly
been complaining like this:
g++ -L../lib/solaris_gcc_nonopt -L../ALroot/solaris_gcc_nonopt/lib
-L/apps/IRDtools/pkgs/pd/sqlite/prod/lib  -o solaris_gcc_nonopt/2logins

Undefined                       first referenced

ld: fatal: Symbol referencing errors. No output written to
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
gmake: *** [solaris_gcc_nonopt/2logins] Error 1

What is very odd about this is that this symbol is in the so and we haven't
changed that in quite a while:

[lon3332xus]-> nm ../lib/solaris_gcc_nonopt/ | grep
         U _Z37ramore_internals_independent_validatei

[lon3332xus]-> c++filt _Z37ramore_internals_independent_validatei


This is happening both on Solaris 8 and Linux.

Does anyone know what could cause this?
