Hmm. On my MacOS X box I just typed
and I get
DLOPEN(3) BSD Library Functions Manual
NAME dlopen, dlsym, dlerror, dlclose -
programmatic interface to the dynamic linker
All these functions use the native dyld(3), NSModule(3), and
NSObjectFileImage(3) functions to provide a compatibility library
so that common unix source code may be easily compiled.
The dlcompat package was written by
Jorge Acereda <jacereda at users.sourceforge.net> and
Peter O'Gorman <ogorman at users.sourceforge.net>
I haven't tried this yet myself, but it sure _looks_ supported.
I mean, this package is there out-of-the-box. (Darwin kernel 7.3.0)
