Bug#508929: mklibs selects symbols from the wrong library

Hello Andrew,

Thank you for this proposed patch. Although I'm far from an expert on 
this, your approach looks logical.

BTW, sorry for the late response. Main reason is that development was 
somewhat frozen due to the preparations for Lenny.

I've just given your patch a try, but if I try to build the Debian 
Installer (which in Debian is the main user of mklibs) with it on a 
system running Debian/unstable amd64, I get the following error:

/usr/bin/mklibs:502: DeprecationWarning: raising a string exception is 
  raise "No library provides non-weak %s" % name
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/mklibs", line 502, in <module>
    raise "No library provides non-weak %s" % name
No library provides non-weak pango_matrix_transform_rectangle@Base@unknown

I can provide a more complete log if desired.
