This is unfortunate, since egcs g++ (and 2.8.x) support for
eliminating duplication is much better under ELF (and Windows
PE/COFF); the GNU linker just throws away extra copies. a.out is not
flexible enough to support this. I think COFF probably could, but
this hasn't been implemented, and a quick check indicates that SPARC
VxWorks uses a.out.

Only if you use the obsolete -fexternal-templates flag. Without that
flag, they still serve their original purpose of controlling the
placement of vtables and extern inlines.

The repo patch (which is folded into egcs) only tries to rebuild
object files with associated .rpo files, so you can control where it
tries to insert template instantiations. I'm not sure what your exact
situation is, but you can compile some files with -frepo and others
with -fno-implicit-templates, and then only the ones compiled with
-frepo will be considered. This may or may not be useful to you.

As the g++ maintainer, I'd like to work out something that could be
folded into the standard distribution, so that other people can
benefit from it. Let's talk.
