I don't know what -Bsymbolic does, and I have a hunch I don't want to know,
especially since I read that it could be something for libtool.

I noticed that too.
You need to specify --disable-gcj on the configure line to make it work.
We should probably make that the default since nobody seems to
want to work on it at this time.
