Thanks for the suggestions. Unfortunately this goes beyond my understanding of compiling as I have no idea as to how to tell if I have multiple libc libraries installed, and if I do, how to account for it using CXXFLAGS.

For some reason your system header files are defining those __sync
symbols but the libc which is being linked against does not contain them.

Please check your system for multiple libc libraries and ensure only one
version is installed (latest by version is best) or that CXXFLAGS is
passed arguments to identify the latest one explicitly.

3.1 series contains no SMP support or atomic operations.
