Thanks for the pointer Kaleb!

But, I'm testing on Fedora 27, where this shouldn't theoretically happen.
So then, why am I hitting this. Is it something to do with the way the

Or is there some runtime ld configuration that has been set up.

In any case, we should push and get the offending functions moved into
That should solve the problem for us.
