But on OS/2 we don't have a GLIBC system ...
The macro that decides to compile or not is defined in gnu-versions.h
which only exists on GLIBC systems.
The following 3 lines
#define ELIDE_CODE 1
which should appear after configure in
would solve the issue for OS/2
I suggest somone to add these 3 lines to config.h.in
