cyrus-imapd/configure does check (with cmulocal/visibility.m4) if 
-fvisibility=hidden / __attribuite__(visibility()) is supported by the 
compiler.  If it is not supported, -fvisibility=hidden is not passed to 
the compiler, and EXPORTED/HIDDEN expand to nothing.  If there are 
systems, where this logic does not happen, then there is a bug (in the 
gnulib's lib-symbol-visibility module).
