Source code is not generally available for XForms. However, in this
case, it probably wouldn't help you anyhow.

The symbols __us_rsthread_stdio and __semgetc should be defined in They are not part of XForms.

Your link step should be getting this automatically. You might make
sure that you're not specifying -nostdlib and then also failing to
specify -lc.

To debug this you may wish use the -v or -show options on your
compiler to put it in "verbose" mode and force it to display all of
the internal commands to the various compilation and link operations.
The exact option will depend upon the compiler you are using -- refer
to the appropriate manual page for directions.
