Unfortunately the only help I can give is say that it "works for me". 
I'm actually on a CVS build with updated packages (toolchain is
binutils-2.14, gcc-3.3, glibc-2.3.2).

be defined by libgcc.a, so this *may* be pointing to a b0rked gcc
install (or at least the C++ part of gcc anyway).

Hope this helps a little,
