Maybe he used the patches I sent included in a message to this list
on 2002-08-05.
Instead of beating the compiler to use --register-prefix-optional
those patches fix the register syntax in two files under '../xpcom/'.

Additionally, the leading underscore (for aout symbols) is left out on
ELF systems. This could be the problem you see about missing symbols.

I could send those patches again, if it's necessary.
