exported symbols with hidden attribute

yes. It's a sall library:


once this library is compiled and installed, libeet.a contains
eet_data_image_jpeg_header_decode in src/lib/eet_image.c (for example),
which is local (it's static). I've tried to force the hidden visibility by
all the ways I know (as you might see), but it stays in libeet.a. Some
symbols are not present, like _eet_listfree_add, which is perfect, but
some others are still there.

Is there an explanation ? I recall that I use gcc 4.0.2.
