I solved pr/7576 (objdump doesn't do dynamic symbols) tonight, and I
noticed that I got results that was off by 0x1000 for This
was due to some libbfd bogosity for a_text != 0x1020 (on i386).

I think I have solved it now, but I'm too tired to really trust my
judgement... I'll send you diffs when I have done a sanity check
and some cleanup (but first sleep...)
