There really is no way to know where a piece of code has been stuffed in a dll if it's entrypoint is not exported.
No debugging symbols or whatever?

The real answer here is to export all the entrypoints.
I agree

    No debugging symbols or whatever?

    Not unless the dll was built for debugging. For example, the first of the missing exports in the OP is _Perl_av_reify referenced in function _da_refgen, and searching perl58.dll for "reify" turns up nothing:

    C:\Perl\bin>strings perl58.dll | find "reify"

    Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
    "Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
    In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
