Hmm, yes the Linker does refer to it, just in case the dynamically
linked program requires it.  I think you should probably arrange that
the missing symbols get linked in from HSlang.o, something like:

	ghc -package lang -optl-u -optl Addr_Azh_con_info

does that help?

No, the default buffering has not changed.  Can you quantify the
slowdown, or provide an example?  Does it only happen when
--enable-threaded-rts is on?
