I am trying to link a C++ application against lttng-ust, with a simple 
test case, and I get the following error message upon linking:

main.cpp:109: undefined reference to `_lttng_ust_tracef(char const*, ...)'

where main.cpp reads:
13: #include <lttng/tracef.h>
109: tracef("my message, this integer %d", 1234);

The following seems to fix my problem:

diff --git a/include/lttng/tracef.h b/include/lttng/tracef.h

But since I've noticed in the history that this whole C guard has been 
reworked several times lately, I have no idea whether this is a good 
idea or not.
Don't know if this has any relevance or anything, but both lttng-ust 
(along with its dependencies) and my test application are being 


Thank you,
