That's the main difference between ELF and Windows: 
symbol resolution is either carried out by the shared 
library (ELF), or by the linker (Windows).  One interesting
experiment would be to see what happens on each platform when 
when you add some more functions to the library after the
application was built.  If you manage to alter the location 
of the functions within the shared library,  the Windows 
application won't see those address changes, but I think 
you will see them on linux.

So +1 to skipping the locate_default_parsers tests on Windows,
since they appear to be ELF-dependent.
