	After building postgresql-7.3.2 from pkgsrc I attempted to add
	the plpgsql scripting language to the database using the command:

	$ createlang plpgsql template1
	ERROR:  Load of file /usr/pkg/lib/postgresql/ failed: dlopen (/usr/pkg/lib/postgresql/ not supported
	createlang: language installation failed

	Investigating this problem, I found that the dynaloader.c file (which
	abstracts dlopen, etc., calls) contained blocks of "if defined(__mips__)"
	that print the 'not supported' error and return a fault instead of
	calling dlopen.

	Build postgresql and attempt to load the language as shown above.
	Note that I am running a kernel with the following settings for
	semaphores so that postgres will start:
	options       SEMMNI=2000     # number of semaphore identifiers
	options       SEMMNS=12000    # number of semaphores in system
	options       SEMUME=2000     # max number of undo entries per process
	options       SEMMNU=6000     # number of undo structures in system
	I replaced these with "ifndef HAVE_DLOPEN" and rebuilt.  The database
	now loads languages and passes nearly all the provided regression
	tests (which would not run before because they required the plpgsql
