Have you considered using -Bsymbolic linker option instead of the

  Hum, no ... I don't know -Bsymbolic, but I fail to see how the
linker could solve the problem I tried to solve (bypass costly ELF
lookup when doing internal library calls). Could you explain ?
  The good point of elfgcchack.h is that it somehow closes
the loop bewteen the API automatic generation and the source. It helped
pinpoint a couple of problems at the time of building releases.
  But yeah it's a hack....
