(leaving gcc out, it's really out of the story, it just happens to
expose support for ifunc)

The story seems complex and related to the glibc rtld build rules.

- We need hurd/lookup-retry.c in the rtld
- It happens to use strncpy since ee11682d4f5 ("hurd: Fix strcpy calls")
- strncpy happens to have a hidden def in libc
- hurd/lookup-retry.os thus refers to __GI_strncpy rather than strncpy
- dl-allobjs.os thus includes strncpy-c.os (that provides __GI_strncpy),
and not strncpy.os (that provides strncpy)
- librtld.map thus contains strncpy-c.os only, and not strncpy.os
- thus no rtld-strncpy.os is getting built
- thus strncpy is not available in rtld
- but strncpy doesn't have a hidden def in rtld
- and thus hurd/rtld-lookup-retry.os refers to strncpy, not __GI_strncpy
- thus the link failure.

The base issue I see here is that dl-allobjs is based on libc-built
objects that might be using hidden defs while rtld-built objects might

But we could also say that it's strncpy that should also have a hidden
def in rtld. The attached patch does this, is this ok?
