This will be reinitialized on every use.

This could avoid the unnecessary strcpy if sym_not_found
was not used at all and this was used instead

if (ret == -1)
return string(buf, end, "<symbol not found>", spec);

return string(buf, end, sym, spec);

or maybe

return string(buf, end, ret == -1 ? "<symbol not found>" : sum, spec);
