So, I can't help but think that others would say that looking into an unspec is by nature, the wrong way to do it, unless that code is in the port.
I think the followup from Bernhard points to a better solution, though the wording in the comment was objectionable. Merely say that the symbol, if weak and not defined, is then not local.
