I don't know. On alioth:~hertzog/mole/dbseed/ you'll find all the files
that are distributed by mole. You can manually inspect some or try to
automatize the check.

The script ~hertzog/mole/harmonize.pl tries to create a common symbols
file based on some heuristics after having verified that the symbols set
are the same.  You can adapt/reuse part of that code to verify in how many
cases hurd-i386 is differing from other arches.

Most probably since they probably use the same "mechanism" to hide some
