I don't claim to understand ld.elf_so, but if I read the Open Group
specs correctly...

    The object's symbols shall be made available for the relocation 
    processing of any other object. In addition, symbol lookup using
    dlopen(0, mode) and an associated dlsym() allows objects loaded
    with this mode to be searched.

and look at the code in src/libexec/ld.elf_so/rtld.c:617:

        if (name == NULL) {
                obj = _rtld_objmain;
        } else
                obj = _rtld_load_library(name, _rtld_objmain, mode);

... me thinks that _rtld_objmain probably is not the right list to search
if the mode parameter is RTLD_GLOBAL.
