Yup, I don't like that.  If you hadn't passed BIND_VERBOSE, the error
message would have been the correct "Unresolved symbols" string.

Yes, I agree it is a shame that not using BIND_VERBOSE loses the more
descriptive error information, but as has been covered several times,
using BIND_VERBOSE is not the correct default for APR.

I don't really understand these questions.

1. there is no "when BIND_VERBOSE is enabled" case, APR does not use
this flag
2. how do you tell reliably whether stderr is closed?
3. how do you find out the real error message?
