    Treat common symbol as undefined for --no-define-common

    When --no-define-common is used to build shared library, treat common
    symbol as undefined so that common symbols that are referenced from a
    shared library to be assigned addresses only in the main program.  This
    eliminates the unused duplicate space in the shared library, and also
    prevents any possible confusion over resolving to the wrong duplicate
    when there are many dynamic modules with specialized search paths for
    runtime symbol resolution.

    --no-define-common is only allowed when building a shared library.
