It could.  There is already some support for it in the Makefiles.  I
chose to leave it for the eventual maintainer to add since it has
packaging and support ramifications.  BTW, I did the same for libg++.

The -D option is now needed to list the dynamic symbols in a shared
library that can not be stripped.  You'll have to ask the binutils
developers why they did this.
