Hi David,

Thanks for the c-yfication patch, I have applied it. My guess is
though that the problems run deeper.

Could it be that you are using a rather old copy of gcc ?

About the static build, did you manage to compie all the dependent
libraries statically as well ? I would imagine that this may be a
problem for pango since its design seems to relie on dynamically
loading script support files ...

If you want to create a 'selfreliant' version of rrdtool, I would
follow the build instructions on the website, this will give you a
copy of rrdtool, installed in a single directory with all the
dependent libraries thrown in too.

And uprade your copy of gcc and maybe the assembler too. Since the
problem you say most likely comes from a missmatch between gcc and
the assembler on your box.
