This is likely a symptom of version scripts hiding symbols.  Two fixes
are available.  The older one modifies glibc/scripts/versions.awk to
add the dotted symbols to generated version scripts (look for the var
"dotsyms" in versions.awk).  The newer one puts the intelligence in
the linker itself.  Does ld --help show information about "--dotsyms"?
If not, you ought to upgrade your linker.  I recommend the latest
CVS binutils source be used for ppc64.
