The real question is what needs to be done to export symbols for use by
 shared objects. This can be set in mk/platform/,
 EXPORT_SYMBOLS_LDFLAGS. This might be compiler specific.

Sure. And now? How do I differ in mk/platform/ between gcc and xlc? Can I differ there between different compiler versions (if there're differences)? etc. The documentation I found for all those things is very poor. Does a document like a porters handbook exists which I've simply not found?

I sent you an e-mail yesterday related to this and a few other issues I ran into build some pkg's using xlc as recommented. I would be glad to help getting a permanent improvement and don't create results you finally can't use.
