After building some python-kadmin wheels on the manylinux docker image, I encountered an exception when running auditwheel on the wheels:

$ auditwheel -vv repair wheelhouse/python_kadmin-0.1.1-cp26-cp26m-linux_x86_64.whl -w /io/wheelhouse

Taking a look at the version symbols inside krb5, we find:

$ readelf -V ./lib/krb5/
Version definition section '.gnu.version_d' contains 3 entries:
  Addr: 0x000000000000bcc0  Offset: 0x00bcc0  Link: 4 (.dynstr)  000000: Rev: 1  Flags: BASE   Index: 1  Cnt: 1  Name:
  0x001c: Rev: 1  Flags: none  Index: 2  Cnt: 1  Name: krb5_3_MIT
  0x0038: Rev: 1  Flags: none  Index: 3  Cnt: 1  Name: HIDDEN

Version needs section '.gnu.version_r' contains 5 entries:
 Addr: 0x000000000000bd18  Offset: 0x00bd18  Link: 4 (.dynstr)
  000000: Version: 1  File:  Cnt: 1
  0x0010:   Name: com_err_3_MIT  Flags: none  Version: 10
  0x0020: Version: 1  File:  Cnt: 2
  0x0030:   Name: GLIBC_2.2.5  Flags: none  Version: 13
  0x0040:   Name: GLIBC_2.9  Flags: none  Version: 9
  0x0050: Version: 1  File:  Cnt: 1
  0x0060:   Name: k5crypto_3_MIT  Flags: none  Version: 7
  0x0070: Version: 1  File:  Cnt: 1

  0x0090: Version: 1  File:  Cnt: 7
  0x00a0:   Name: GLIBC_2.14  Flags: none  Version: 15
  0x00b0:   Name: GLIBC_2.8  Flags: none  Version: 14
  0x00c0:   Name: GLIBC_2.16  Flags: none  Version: 12
  0x00d0:   Name: GLIBC_2.4  Flags: none  Version: 11
  0x00e0:   Name: GLIBC_2.3.4  Flags: none  Version: 8
  0x00f0:   Name: GLIBC_2.2.5  Flags: none  Version: 5
  0x0100:   Name: GLIBC_2.3  Flags: none  Version: 4

So I believe the issue here is that we are attempting to determine the max symbol version on all included version symbols, even though we only care about the ones in policy.json (GLIBC, CXXABI, etc.). While there are conventions for the numeric versioning for the GLIBC etc. symbols, this is not generally true, which is why we're running into the issue with e.g. k5crypto_3_MIT having a version read as MIT. A fix would be to filter out any symbols we don't care about per policy before running max_versioned_symbol on them?
