[LLVMdev] Dynamic loading on x86-Linux

ISSUE: By default, symbols are not exported from an executable unless 
they are linked against a DSO.  What this means is that dlopen()ed DSOs 
cannot link to symbols in the main executable unless that executable was 
linked with --export-dynamic.

ACTION: Ensure that opt is linked with "-Wl,--export-dynamic" on the G++ 
command line by defining "ExportSymbols" in Makefile.common.  For 
Solaris this definition should be commented out.

PATCH: top-level, patch -p0.
