My understanding is that --enable-initfini-array enables the use of 
init/fini_array within GCC itself but does not effect code generation.  
Certainly neither the copy of Gcc I am using on Linux nor on Syllable were 
configured with --enable-initfini-array.  The problem is that both the GCC 
configure test for init_array & test code I detailed in the last email both 
work fine, so init_array/fini_array etc. are available and work under
