But even when linking with all dependencies the symbol remains undefined
in my shared library. However an 'ldd <my-so>' shows that my-so nows
where it can find the other libaries to resolve the undefined symbols.

If I don't link my-so with its dependencies, importing it in Python will
result in an error about undefined symbols.
