A couple of linker errors have been fixed since 1.0. The error above occurs
when you use an 1.0 ld with a -current version of libc (due to the presence
"alias" symbols in the library to clean up the name space for
Standard C/Posix compliancy).

If you've already overwritten your 1.0 libraries, try making a statically
linked ld first.
