Robert has given you the runes for Linux, but dlopen and dlsym come from
different places on other *nix systems:
Mac OS X: libSystem.B.Dylib
And so on on other systems. Dlopen also tends to have quite complicated
behaviour on all of them, with 32-vs-64 issues, various control flags,
etc. We try hard to avoid using it; I appreciate you don't have a choice,
but getting it all straight is unlikely to be quick or easy.
