Ok. I may be on to something but am most likely wrong, but I checked a bunch of files mainly the ones from above and a few others and all the error messages have something to do with the file 'vfprintf.c' . I have been, however, unable to find any reference to '__GI_ ' in any form. The change log says the following "sysdeps/unix/sysv/linux/alpha/syscalls.list: Remove __GI_*
aliases, already added by make-syscalls.sh." Any ideas.
