weak references not working right

 Description  « Hide
Weak references, via the __weakref__ attribute do not work correctly,
the example code

#include <stdio.h>

void my_foo(void) __attribute__((__weakref__("foo")));

main(int ac, char *av[])
    printf("my_foo %p\n", my_foo);

    if (my_foo != NULL)

    return 0;

shows the problem, when compiled with pcc results in undefined references to "foo"
what should happen I think, is that the assembler output references "my_foo" and a

   .weakref my_foo,foo

line is emitted, this allows the linker to decide if foo can be resolved, or if it should
supply a nil value..

weakref is not supported except for recent binutils. I have some support for it in pcc, but it should probably be checked in configure whether it exist or not.
