  That's great news :-)

  It seems you found how to fix those (at least, I don't see them in my
i386 cowbuilder).

  I don't know much about symbols files, I'm afraid.  However, the
pkgkde_symbolshelper Debhelper component seems to handle stuff quite
nicely for you; removing the .symbols file in debian/ leads to a build
with no warnings about missing symbols, and Lintian ceases to complain.
It seems to me that this also applies to the ocsync source package.

  I'm afraid I can't help more than that.  However, Jun'ichi Uekawa's
library packaging guide and the "shared libraries" section of the Debian
policy manual may be of use.
