Works fine for me, and for the postgres95 users out there, too.  Take
a look at /usr/share/mk/ for the way to construct a .so, or
take a look at the pg95 stuff for the way to use dlopen(3) and friends
to link in your .so of choice.  (There used to be a problem with
leading underscores, but that was about a year ago, and things have
changed since then).
