As I recall, we ran into problems when they were extern because if the
abort-ified function is called from a startup module before `main'
we'll get a spurious crash.
[dig dig dig] ah here we are, it was you (rth) who did it ;-)
Since then, we have many more of these builtins, more testcases and
thus more opportunities for this problem to happen and produce
spurious testsuite failures on alpha-linux et al.
