System: NetBSD rainier 1.5.1_ALPHA NetBSD 1.5.1_ALPHA (JCR-1.5-20010108) #0: Mon Jan 8 09:25:45 PST 2001 reed@rainier:/usr/src/sys/arch/i386/compile/JCR-1.5-20010108 i386

The DLFCN(3) manual page says that dlopen()'s second argument "has
currently no effect, but should be set to DL_LAZY for future
compatibility." But DL_LAZY and RTLD_NOW behave differently.
T. Vierling said "the manpage should be fixed.
We support several RTLD_* flags now."
