You do not have a main() but you are stating to the compiler that 
there is a main(). Not having a main() has to be denoted by the '-c' 
option, which make the message vanish.

If you would call one of the 'f' you would get a not so cryptic error

The mangled name shoukd read '_D4test1fFiZv'. May be you want to 
write your own little demangle tool.
