I had to change the configuration to build with loadable module
support. I then tried to use the freebsd dynamic elf libs, which
worked (well, it loaded, I didn't have a movie which needed them
just yet) , but only for one lib in the directory at a time. This
is actually a bug in our dlsym() implementation that at least 2
PR's have been filed against. We search every loaded object
instead of the object specified in the dlsym() call.
