Running the text script manually shows, on line 8, how nm was invoked:

    $ ./perl -Ilib t/porting/libperl.t 
    # $^O = linux
    # $Config{archname} = x86_64-linux-thread-multi
    # $Config{cc} = cc
    # libperl = ../libperl.a
    # nm = /usr/bin/nm
    # nm_style = gnu
    # nm_opt = 
    # command: "/usr/bin/nm  ../libperl.a 2>libperl20767 |"
