All platforms that use a more strict exporting method with export
files, for example AIX and Windows DLLs. The default for ELF based
systems is to put all symbols together in one big heap. But you can
configure Solaris, Irix and HP-UX to use a more strict export file
based symbol management, then problem would hit as well. I do use Irix
and HP-UX in export file mode for the programs I work on to insure that
only the API I have defined is used across module (DSO and shlib)
boundaries.
