SymbolsHelper is a useful tool but, but most of the time is unnecessary and
leads to a whole load of extra work, since it only whitelists/blacklists
architectures rather than looking for patterns. In this case, it looks like a
lot of these symbols should be using arch-bits=32 and arch-bits=64 rather than
whitelisting or blacklisting all the 64-bit architectures.
