	Amen - we should static-ise them all :-)

	Of course; many of them would previously have had hidden visibility and
thus cause no problems for a 'normal' build, as they'd be elided before
run-time linking but ... ;-)

	I had a tool that would run over all .so's and generate lists of
duplicate symbols which you prolly want to run across the code-base to
dig out all the duplicates: it's a nasty perl thing but let me dig it
out for you.

	Thanks !
