I've checked this and I think I understand the task in principle but
in practice for libbpp-core that's a no-go for manual adaption to
edit about 1000 entries (may be per architecture).  Is there some
tool that helps here?  If not my proposed solution would be to
provide a symbols file for amd64 only and move it out of the way
in debian/rules for other architectures.

(I gave it a very minimal shot in branch symbols_i386 but gave up
after some 20+x entries.)

Kind regards

        Andreas.
