[fpc-pascal]Dynamic Symbol Information For Functions and Procedures in Linux ELF

Assembler is out of my leauge so I cannot help about it.

On the other hand I was experimenting with creating (.so) libs
with FPC and I realized that if I export a function in a
library it is actually included in the dynamic symbol table.

I mean in case of a shared dynamic library FPC actually does

Also, if anybody is interested in libglade headers and sample
source code, I can post them.

Thank you all.
