OK, so you have linker errors.  You need to link in, for instance, libc,
which houses clock_gettime(2).  

For each undefined reference, try "man <function name>".  The LIBRARY
section of the man page should mention the library that provides the
function.  Add that to your command line.  Repeat as needed.  

You're welcome, btw.  Instruction on linking to standard libraries is not
really on topic for this list.
