the version script operates on linker-visible symbols, not on C
visible symbols, so the linker is operating correctly.  this is why
projects like alsa-lib have the version script be a .in file and it
prefixes all symbols with like @SYMBOL_PREFIX at .  then the configure
script processes that into the final version script with
@SYMBOL_PREFIX@ replaced with "_" or "" depending on the configure
detected needs of the target system.

considering support is apparently already there via
WITH_SYMBOL_UNDERSCORE, seems like it should be pretty easy to extend
