execinfo.h provides the glibc backtrace(3) api

it is non-portable and it should not
be called from production software
(it relies on fragile technology: only works
with certain non-standard linker and compiler
options and can easily break)

so they should test for execinfo.h in their
configure or at least provide a way to disable it
