Actually, it doesn't call the function pointed to by the (void *), but 
only compares (void *)check_function (I forgot the name in the code) to 
(void *)gfc_check_minloc_maxloc, so the function pointer need not be 
callable, it only has to be unique. I agree that it would still be 
cleaner to implement its own add_sym* function, even though I refrained 
from doing this, as MINLOC is indeed unique in its characteristics.
