Okay, so the symbols are in libxkbfile.a, but here's what happens when
it links:

/bin/sh ../libtool --mode=link cc -DDATA_DIR=\"/usr/share/libxklavier\" -I. -I/usr/include -I/usr/include/libxml2   -I -I.. -DXKB_HEADERS_PRESENT=1 -g -Wall -O2   -o libxklavier.la -rpath /usr/lib -version-info 8:0:0 -lxml2 -lpthread -lz -lm   -lxkbfile -L/usr/X11R6/lib  xklavier.lo xklavier_xkb.lo xklavier_evt.lo xklavier_util.lo xklavier_config.lo xklavier_config_xkb.lo xklavier_config_i18n.lo xklavier_props.lo xklavier_dump.lo

cc -shared  .libs/xklavier.o .libs/xklavier_xkb.o .libs/xklavier_evt.o .libs/xklavier_util.o .libs/xklavier_config.o .libs/xklavier_config_xkb.o .libs/xklavier_config_i18n.o .libs/xklavier_props.o .libs/xklavier_dump.o  /usr/lib/libxml2.so -lpthread -lz -lm -L/usr/X11R6/lib  -Wl,-soname -Wl,libxklavier.so.8 -o .libs/libxklavier.so.8.0.0
(cd .libs && rm -f libxklavier.so.8 && ln -s libxklavier.so.8.0.0 libxklavier.so.8)
(cd .libs && rm -f libxklavier.so && ln -s libxklavier.so.8.0.0 libxklavier.so)
ar cru .libs/libxklavier.a  xklavier.o xklavier_xkb.o xklavier_evt.o xklavier_util.o xklavier_config.o xklavier_config_xkb.o xklavier_config_i18n.o xklavier_props.o xklavier_dump.o
ranlib .libs/libxklavier.a
creating libxklavier.la

And then once again:

$ nm libxklavier/.libs/libxklavier.so.8.0.0 | grep -i xkbrf
         U XkbRF_Free
         U XkbRF_GetComponents
         U XkbRF_Load
$ nm libxklavier/.libs/libxklavier.a | grep -i xkbrf
         U XkbRF_Free
         U XkbRF_GetComponents
         U XkbRF_Load

So it seems libtool is not even trying to link in the symbols from
libxkbfile.a, though -lxkbfile is included in the dependency_libs in

I don't see this libtool warning on alpha or ia64 buildd logs, which
just have -lxkbfile in the cc -shared command, but the libtool warning
is there in the arm buildd log.

So then, why is only ARM doing things this way?  And if ARM needs to do
things this way, then why, if -lxkbfile is included in dependency_libs,
is it *not* part of the link command for gnome-settings-daemon (about
four emails ago in this thread)?

Outlook: because of this, control-center does not build on ARM, so GNOME
2.6 does not build on all arches.  Per AJT's post (about seven emails
ago in this thread), this implies that until this is resolved, GNOME 2.6
is not ready to enter sarge, and therefore should not enter unstable.
