Could it be the optimisation settings? There is -Oi which is use
instrinsic functions for strcmp etc (i.e. compiler generated). I think
when this is on, the compiler generates the functions when it sees them,
but doesn't realise they should be in the std:: namespace. Debug builds
don't enable this.

(It may be implicitly enabled by another -O option such as -O2)

Just a guess.
