I think I see the cause of this.  There is a static function called
append_glyph defined in xdisp.o.  Apparently that version of GCC
compiles it in a way that isn't static, effectively producing
two global definitions of append_glyph.

I think that is a bug in the compiler and/or linker.  However, I
wonder why we do this confusing thing in Emacs.  Couldn't we rename
the function append_glyph that is defined and used in xdisp.c?
If we rename it to store_next_glyph, does that fix that bug?

Likewise, we could rename produce_stretch_glyph in xdisp.c
to generate_stretch_glyph.

Christoph, could you try that?
