Well, the problem I'm talking about (and looks to be your problem too)
was fixed:

Tue Dec 16 01:22:37 PST 1997
Update of /cvsroot/src/gnu/usr.bin/gcc/cc1plus
In directory netbsd1:/var/slash-tmp/cvs-serv6391
Modified Files:
        cp-tree.h decl.c decl2.c pt.c 
Log Message:
Eliminate DECL_C_STATIC() and DECL_PUBLIC(), as in egcs.
Make sure TREE_PUBLIC() is set for inline functions which are not static, so
that they actually get instantiated.

Your test program works fine for me on an 1.3_BETA system (only one
I can reach at the moment). My guess would still be that something
is out of date, be it /usr/libexec/cc1plus or /usr/lib/
or /usr/lib/
