Why is symbol versioning hard to test for, again? You make a library
containing two versions of the same function, one returns one, the other
two. The one that returns one is the default symbol. The test
application tries to link against the version that returns two. If that
works, symbol versioning is supported.

Or do you have to take care of toolchains without shared linking support
as well? Is there such a thing as static libs with symbol versioning?
