Has anyone ported the GNU dld package to NetBSD or is there any other
way of getting dynamic linking/unlinking of object code at runtime
they exist, but aren't documented in any man pages (i think).
if you have access to sunos, or a svr4 machine, `man dlopen'
should give you the info you need. perl5's dynaloader uses
them (look in perl5.xxx/ext/DyanLoader/dl_dlopen.xs).
i forgot to lists the differences (thanks adam):
netbsd doesn't current have dlerror().
netbsd's dlsym() *requires* leading underscores.
netbsd uses <link.h> not <dlfcn.h>.
