How about this?

I changed the calls to have_{partial,full}_symbols to two new
functions objfile_has_{partial,full}_symbols.  I think it's TRTTD
This patch also adds a test for info_verbose so the messages are
printed for shared libs if verbosity turned on.

        * objfiles.h (objfile_has_partial_symbols): Declare.
        (objfile_has_full_symbols): Declare.
        * objfiles.c (objfile_has_partial_symbols): New function.
        (objfile_has_full_symbols): New function.
        * symfile.c (symbol_file_add_with_addrs_or_offsets): Only print
        "no debugging symbols found" for main program, unless the user
        turns on verbosity.
