My understanding is that the software distributed by RPM these days
(since circa 2003) default to having all of the symbol information
stripped and distributed in a separate debuginfo package.

To wit:

nm /bin/ls
nm: /bin/ls: no symbols

I believe that to get any sort of stack trace out of /bin/ls one would
need to first load the symbols from the coreutils-debuginfo package.
