This is a problem I want to pursue.  How does your program open
DSOs dynamically if not through libdl?  In the link command, is
"-ldl" *before* other libraries?  It really sounds like you're
papering over a real bug or somesuch.  Can you give enough
detail to let me repeat what you're seeing?  Point to an URL for
the source if possible.

I don't understand this.  You add libdl.so.2 to the image
"manually" and things work?

-static.  It's in the manual and info pages.
Individual libraries by -Wl,-Bstatic,-lthelib,-Ddynamic

Yes, but link *just that particular library* static.
