Is "EXPORTED_FIND_TASK_BY_PID" defined in src/config/afsconfig.h?
Sounds like a configure test that didn't come out correctly.

BTW it would be a useful improvement to the build system to fail the
build of the module when there are undefined symbols.  There are
warnings in the build log but they're not obvious to spot.  It would
be better to catch this at build time than later when trying to load
the module.
