Subject: Close to a port of licq 0.70.1 but...

I've been working very close with the licq dev guys to get it to work under

I got it compiling great (even fixed stuff for the FreeBSD guys!) but I've hit
the top of my C skills.  Licq does some plugin stuff that both Net and Free
BSDs puke on.

It seems that out dynamic linking is different from that of Linux and some
others.  licq has a gui 'plugin' component and a daemon.  The daemon
doesn a dynamic load of this plugin.

Since this dynamic lib is loaded from an arbitrary directory instead of
allowing ldso to do the work for us, is there something specical I should do? 
Special compiler option?

Currently it cores on NetBSD and fails with some errors on FreeBSD.

Could this be a coff vs. ELF ism?
