Hi Alan,

I'm getting a compile error when I build gdb HEAD on native
hppa2.0w-hp-hpux11.11.  It's an undeclared symbol,
som_bfd_is_group_section .

	  /bin/sh ./libtool --mode=compile gcc -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -I. -I/house/chastain/gdb/s1/bfd -I. -D_GNU_SOURCE -DHOST_HPPAHPUX -D_LARGEFILE64_SOURCE -DHPUX_CORE   -I. -I/house/chastain/gdb/s1/bfd -I/house/chastain/gdb/s1/bfd/../include  -I/house/chastain/gdb/s1/bfd/../intl -I../intl   -W -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes -Wmissing-prototypes -g -O2 -c /house/chastain/gdb/s1/bfd/som.c

It looks like a simple lacuna in this patch:

  2004-04-30  Alan Modra  <>

        * section.c (bfd_make_section_anyway): Add all sections to hash tab.

        * elf-bfd.h (bfd_elf_is_group_section): Declare.
        * elf.c (bfd_elf_is_group_section): New function.

There's a lot of new foo_is_group_section functions,
but none for hpux som.
