A fix for this would be to enhance the preprocessor checks that WebKit
to decide whether it should or should not build those symbols into the
library (they've been added for MIPS if I'm not mistaken). I wonder if
that's worth the effort, though.

Is this for some distro package? The x86 packages in Debian do not hit
that error, I guess we're not being too strict with -march.
