Hi Mike

Today looked too into this problem and found some hints:

While gcc/llvm-gcc produced fine U _InstallConnexionHandlers and U _SetConnexionClientButtonMask symbols, 
clang aditionally creates U __Z24InstallConnexionHandlersv and U __Z28SetConnexionClientButtonMaskv
wich means demangled exactly the missing symbols while linking ( InstallConnexionHandlers() and SetConnexionClientButtonMask() )

Not exactly sure why this happens atm, but it seems triggered by the __attribute__((weak_import))  flag.

I tried to make these resolvable at runtime ( -Wl,-U,__Z24InstallConnexionHandlersv -Wl,-U,__Z28SetConnexionClientButtonMaskv ), but this
only pushd the problem. Also some hints i found to use -undefined dynamic_lookup is not a good solution here. ( just masks other linking probs if any )

I checked our demangling ( extern "C" ) and all looks fine so far, also in the 3DConexxion headers the #ifdef __cplusplus is set as well.

So atm. i am stuck with this odd c++ symbols occuring only with clang )

Have no idea tonight, but will try to catch my linking-expert soon.
