When I say "how should I fix it", I mean what's the best way to
implement -export-dynamic on AIX. Maybe a new export_dynamic_cmds
command that creates the symbols ala export_symbols_cmds and then
export_dynamic_flag_spec to add the ld flag to export the symbols from
export_symbols_cmds to the binary?

gaim/galculator fail because they require symbols in the main
executable to be exported to dlopen()'ed modules.
