[New-bugs-announce] [issue44251] ctypes '_get_soname' fails silently on missing objdump

New submission from Guillaume Desforges <guillaume.desforges.pro at gmail.com>:

## Description

Libraries such as oscrypto will use `ctypes.utils.find_library` to look for libraries, which in turns uses ``.

However, on Linux, if the system does not have the objdump command, the function fails silently.


## Expected behavior

It should either raise an Exception saying that objdump is missing, or outputting a helpful message.
