Symbolic merges


Folks, I merged a removal of an older workaround prior to the intended merge time. This was the -Bsymbolic patch from [1]. It looks like it was a bug in the linker that no longer exists but it also looks like we never got a full resolution on it. I removed it because it prevents throwing exceptions back from a DSO, which we'll need for cleaning adding internal STEP processing without also catching the OCE segfaults. Jon helpfully checked that it doesn't cause issues under Arch (where it originally was reported).

That said, if it causes any issues, I'm happy to revert it. I know a fair amount of work went into figuring out that bug and I don't want to recreate that work. I had meant to hold it for the official merge window but I lost track of my branches while fixing a different bug.
