As explained in my replies to Peter [1][2], in my uses of AC_PROG_NM,
when 'nm' is not detected, the library that is built is not namespace
clean: its exported symbols are likely to collide with those of other

And then there's also the functionality provided by libtool that
relies on 'nm'. You know better than me which functionality that is
(maybe -dlopen or -dlpreopen).
