PR port-pmax/6817 says that 1.3.3's dlopen/dlsym() don't properly
handle doing a dlsym() when more than one library has defined the
dlsym()'d symbol.

Is this a bug on ELF systems, or is it the way things are meant to
work on ELF?

As far as I can tell, the ld.elf_so code is the same on all ELF ports;
so the bug (if its a bug) should be present on an Alpha. Could someone
verify that?

qi'd appreciate Cc: of any replies to me, since apparently I'm not on
these lists.  Thanks!
