Recent-ish gcc versions don't allow duplicate "common" values any more
(usually those are uninitialized global values). Previously it just
overlapped them (like Fortran "common blocks"). There are some options
related to this, such as -fno-common or -fcommon. There are also some
related linker options for this, where the default changed.
I think there may be some packages with some build option where the
setting changed back to how it was, but I can't find examples so quickly
