--enable-hidden-symbols is a curl configure option, not a gcc option. If
you look at curl's you'll see how that expands into a set of
flags to gcc and a set of attributes for global symbols. If you want to
create your own test, you'll need to replicate what configure does in your
own program. It's probably easier to just recompile curl.
