Hi Michael

I've updated the symbols for the new version and added symbols to
allow for architectures that build with mpich instead of openmpi
(s390x, m68k, etc.).
I've marked them (optional) for now, but we can change them to be more
specific if required.
I've also marked some other symbols (optional) that seem to depend on
whether the architecture is 32-bit, 64-bit or SSE.

What can we do about that?

And on the subject of testsuites, won't they fail on the buildds if we
enable SSE, AVX, etc?

I haven't looked at the above yet.
