I'm building gdb on linux on when I build it statically, I get a multiple symbol
definition for savestring, between one of gdb's source files and /usr/lib/libreadline.a
I vaguely remember someone saying at one time that it was possible to specify which
symbol is used during linking? I've searched the web a bit, the HOWTO's, info pages,
and some FAQ's, but I still can't figure out to specify where to get the symbol from.
Any help would be appreciated.
