Bug Description

gcc/configs/arm/lib1funcs.asm, line 1266, calls raise(), even if built with -fno-exceptions -- resulting in

/mnt/user/bero/android-toolchain-androideabi/bin/../lib/gcc/arm-linux-androideabi/4.6.2/armv7-a/libgcc.a(_dvmd_lnx.o): In function `__aeabi_ldiv0':
/mnt/user/bero/toolchain-arm-linux-androideabi/build/gcc-linaro-4.6-2011.07-0/arm-linux-androideabi/armv7-a/libgcc/../../../.././../gcc/gcc-linaro-4.6-2011.07-0/libgcc/../gcc/config/arm/lib1funcs.asm:1266: undefined reference to `raise'
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

e.g. when linking Android init.

__aeabi_ldiv0 is called when a division by zero error occurs. According to the ARM ABI ('Run-time ABI for the ARM® Architecture 2.08'), the implementation may:
 * Return the value passed to them as a parameter.
 * Or, return a fixed value defined by the execution environment (such as 0).
 * Or, raise a signal (often SIGFPE) or throw an exception, and do not return.

The version that comes with libgcc calls the standard C function 'raise' to kill the current process. See:

The Bionic implementation is at:

Note that this is unrelated to C++ exceptions. It seems that your C library isn't getting linked in. If you can't use the C library, implement your own version of raise() or __aeabi_ldiv0. The version in libgcc is a weak symbol and will be overriden by your version.
