You're right, the version I have says that too.  Probably the right
thing to do, in my opinion, is to make the dyld gmodule backend also
handle dylibs in addition to bundles.

Deployment I bet is less of an issue... if it can't be upstreamed for
glib 2.2 (in favor of glib 2.4), it could probably be added as a patch
in fink.
