This is a bug report for perl from,
generated with the help of perlbug 1.40 running under perl 5.20.2.

[Please describe your issue here]

Compiling perl 5.20.2 with GCC 5.1.0 reintroduced the issue reported in bug #113022. I was told, that you should use "__attribute__ ((used))" to check for the availability of functions. This small patch fixes the issue:
