Hm. All the libs in my /usr/lib are stripped, but I did what you
suggested in /usr/obj/usr/src/world_i386/usr/lib/ and I found the
symbol defined in libc.so.5, exactly where I would expect it to be.

I notice that Joerg did the citrus import *on* April 21. Maybe your last

Mee too! But I confess I gave up trying to compile any ports with
gcc34 about two months ago because I just don't have the skills to fix
most of the *big* ones like gnome/kde. Thank the programming gods for
xfce4, which continues to work in spite of everything!
