>
> Add an option to "hide" symbols in shared libraries except when they are 
> declared public.
> Extends efforts already in place for Windows builds.
> Excludes an effort to determine what symbols should be considered "public" 
> interfaces.
> The gcc 4 -fvisibility option is said to:
> ...very substantially improve linking and load times of shared object 
> libraries, produce more optimized code, provide near-perfect API export and 
> prevent symbol clashes. It is strongly recommended that you use this in any 
> shared objects you distribute.
> See here: http://gcc.gnu.org/wiki/Visibility
> Attached patch (patch.txt) will build libqpid-proton.so shared library using 
> this flag.
> It reduces number of symbols from 700+ to 500+.
