How are you linking the application? It looks like something is wrong 
there.  RTEMS is a big library and carefully constructed so you do not
link in functionality you do not reference directly or by implication.

I saw a "LD" in a previous email.  Are you using the GNU tools provided
with 4.6 or some other toolset?

How are you linking?  It appears to be wrong.
