  • referenced symbol not found
  • runtime definition of the symbol was not found
  • Unsatisfied data symbol

error occurs, for example: disp+work: fatal: relocation error: file disp+work: symbol
ixml_iXMLOStream_PreserveSpecialChar: referenced symbol not found

rtld: 0712-001 Symbol
locatorXTi__ was referenced
from module disp+work(), but a runtime definition
of the symbol was not found.
