This sounds like the same bug as
which would mean that NetBSD doesn't interpret RTLD_GLOBAL the same way
Linux does. What evolution/glade want is that if it does
g_module_open(NULL), then it should be able to resolve symbols not only
in the main program and any shared libraries, but also in any other
modules it has previously g_module_open()ed. The RTLD_GLOBAL in
glib2/gmodule/gmodule-dl.c makes that happen on Linux, but apparently
not on NetBSD.
Probably the easiest way to fix it would be to port the patch in that
bug over to gmodule-dl.c, though it will be larger for dl, since the
code there isn't currently keeping a list of dlopened modules like the
dyld version does.
