The only difference between the two scripts is how the set of symbols
to be incuded is determined. mklibs.py simply adds missing symbols
iteratively until everything is satisfied. mklibs.sh does something
different (I just realized that it doesn't do what I thought it
did... unfortunately there's no real documentation... Hm, I'm afraid
somebody else will have to tell you how it works :) You can find both
scripts in the boot-floppies CVS, in scripts/rootdisk.

Well another difference: mklibs.py uses readelf insead of objdump,
since that seemed to be slightly easier to parse.
