I don't see this failure on ppc64el on Debian [0]. Perhaps there is some
toolchain difference?

This is more-or-less known [1]. The problem is that ppc64 reports
defined functions as 'D' in nm output. At least on ELF architectures,
readelf -Ws is more reliable. How many people would using readelf break
things for? Currently the test does not run on macOS, afaik.
