presumably you're having trouble with the preprocessor using the
define name literally instead of expanding it. you can address this
two ways:
- force gcc to expand it wit a few more levels
- define the macro on the command line

here is the first way:
$ cat test.c
#include <stdio.h>
foo() { puts("foo"); }
_foo() { puts("_foo"); }
__foo() { puts("__foo"); }
#define __SYM(x) ___SYM(PFX, x) /* queue PFX */
#define ___SYM(pfx,x) ____SYM(pfx, x) /* expand PFX */
#define ____SYM(pfx,x) pfx##x /* paste them together */
main() { __SYM(foo)(); }
$ gcc test.c -DPFX=_ && ./a.out
_foo
and here is the second:
$ cat test.c
#include <stdio.h>
foo() { puts("foo"); }
_foo() { puts("_foo"); }
__foo() { puts("__foo"); }
main() { __SYM(foo)(); }
$ gcc test.c -D'__SYM(x)=_##x' && ./a.out
_foo
