 I don't know.  Perhaps someone else knows.

 As I noted stripping the problematic symbol is IMO the best solution.  
Using `$CC -print-prog-name=strip' to discover where the right `strip' 
binary is should be a straightforward way to arrange that in a platform 
`configure' fragment.  Then we can dump `_gp_disp' from .abilist files.
