After compiling/linking a FreeRTOS program into an ELF file for 
ARM-Cortex M4 (ARMv7E-M) using arm-none-eabi tools, I see that some 
symbols are still undefined. Some are from libc/crt libraries.

The output of
arm-none-eabi-objdump -tT | grep --line-buffered "UND" | tee tmp.txt

00000000  w      *UND*  00000000 malloc
00000000  w      *UND*  00000000 __deregister_frame_info
00000000  w      *UND*  00000000 software_init_hook
00000000  w      *UND*  00000000 hardware_init_hook
00000000  w      *UND*  00000000 __libc_fini
00000000  w      *UND*  00000000 _Jv_RegisterClasses
00000000  w      *UND*  00000000 __register_frame_info
00000000  w      *UND*  00000000 free

This project uses CMake with the following compile and link flags:
set(GCC_COVERAGE_COMPILE_FLAGS "-march=armv7e-m -mthumb \
-mfloat-abi=softfp -mfpu=fpv4-sp-d16 -Og -fmessage-length=0 \
-fsigned-char -ffunction-sections -fdata-sections -ffreestanding \
-fno-move-loop-invariants -Wall -Wextra -g3")

"-T \"${PROJECT_SOURCE_DIR}/ldscripts/mem.ld\" \
-T \"${PROJECT_SOURCE_DIR}/ldscripts/libs.ld\" \
-T \"${PROJECT_SOURCE_DIR}/ldscripts/sections.ld\" \
-Xlinker --gc-sections -Wl,-Map,\"elka.map\" \

As you can see, it uses
 specs, which uses Newlib I think.

Edit (new acct):
For context, the program builds and runs with closed-source build tools, 
but I switched to open-source tools and now it builds but does not run.
