The December 2002 developer tools include a new option to ld,
-exported_symbols_list.  This allows you to limit the exported symbols without
using nmedit (faster, since you don't need a second pass).  We should add an
autoconf test for this and use it if it's available.

Also, we don't use MOZ_COMPONENTS_VERSION_SCRIPT_LDFLAGS when MOZ_DEBUG is set
on other platforms; we shouldn't run nmedit in that case either (for developers
with older tools)... it's really slow on a debug libgklayout.
