Well, in this case I gave you a suggestion, so it was implicit that I'd have approved that patch, no?


In this case, I am attempting
to deal with the general case if objdump not being present.
Don't other hosts (AIX?) lack objdump in their default configuration?
I explicitly avoided using darwin-specific tools to implement
the fall-back when objdump is absent so that other hosts lacking
objdump could benefit as well.

I'm not sure if "nm -g" would work under Linux, since


$ nm -g /usr/lib64/libsqlite3.so
nm: /usr/lib64/libsqlite3.so: no symbols

$ objdump -T /usr/lib64/libsqlite3.so|head -5

/usr/lib64/libsqlite3.so: file format elf64-x86-64

DYNAMIC SYMBOL TABLE:
00000037aca081b8 l    d  .init	0000000000000000              .init


So I prefer to have this only on Darwin for now.
