Re: toolchain issue makes qt3 drop symbols ?

Some people point to binutils 2.17 -> 2.18.
We think about a binutils-2.17 bug that ?stat64 appeared in the first place.
Indeed, ?stat64 weren't defined in Qt3.

so far, identified packages are:
gwenview (already rebuilded against Qt3.3.8b)
> Do it like ubuntu did and just binNMU the packages expecting these symbols?
I'm in favor of binNMU needed packages.
For informations, KDE 3.5.9 will be tagged on february 13th and
released on 19th.
In case of binNMU, we can skip KDE3 packages and wait for KDE 3.5.9 upload.

ldd -r -d 2>&1 | grep undefined | grep stat64 on /usr/lib and /usr/lib/kde3
I found some other undefined not related to ?stat64 symbols.
