I would first check the symbol entry with nm. If the weak flag is
missing there, it's a compiler or source code problem (something
redefining the tag for weak symbols to something else f.e.).
If the weak flag is there, I would blame the linker (after making
a test case showing exactly the wrong behaviour) and check if this
is already a known gcc bug.
