Thought so.

-bI:foo.exp - does symbol imports (read foo.exp)
-bE:foo.exp - does symbol exports (write foo.exp)

The foo.exp files are a list of symbols matching entry points in shared

long history of why this is as it is. To long for here... :-)

I've tried several incantations. No joy getting it to work.
