Summary0005488: Libextractor exports private symbols that are not declared in extractor.h

Libextractor currently exports private symbols that are not declared in extractor.h. In addition, all plugins exports symbols, while they do not provide public header.

Please find attached the list of all exported symbols, which is way longer than extractor.h.

Exporting only chosen symbols can be done with libtool's -export-symbols and -export-symbols-regex options, or you can use the same trick as in libmicrohttpd (_MHD_EXTERN).

TagsNo tags attached.

Well, the plugins _must_ export those symbols, otherwise dlsym wouldn't work. So that one is expected and fine. But you are right, we should use the MHD-trick and avoid exporting the symbols from the main library.
