This most likely means that you've set CFLAGS in your environment,
which is overriding the setting in the PCMCIA Makefile... and your
CFLAGS does not specify optimization.  These missing symbols are all
inline functions, that only get inlined properly if compiled with

So, the quick workaround is to unset the CFLAGS variable before
building PCMCIA.  I'm fixing the Makefiles for 3.1.4 to not allow
CFLAGS overrides from the environment.  It was meant to be a feature,
but I've never really used it, and it confuses people.
