While updating my drop-priv patch for nmap-4.01, I noticed that nmap *.o
files define a lot of global symbols, obviously more than necessary.

I wrote a simple script (for GNU/Linux) to find potential symbols which
could be made static:

Whew, that is a lot of symbols!  But I went through them all and made
the vast majority of them static (a few I was able to remove
entirely).  The change will be in the next version of Nmap.  Thanks
for the list and script.
