I see these errors, too.  According to a message I found from one of the 
developers, the problem is that older versions of libtool aren't 
exporting symbols from the executable (to dynamically loaded SO's, I 
assume).  I see hundreds of these warnings; if you're only seeing a few, 
then maybe your compiler or linker is different from mine.

You're luckier than I, then.  How would feel about throwing together a 
binary package for me?

Looks like it could be a symptom of the linker problem.  I've never seen 
that, though.
