Well, that's what autoconf is for, isn't it? But I don't know on what  
systems people run the stock VM so perhaps we do need to be more  
cautious. If you think autoconf is insufficient to cover this, we  
could rewrite the code using dlopen() to remove the static dependency.

Sure, that would be no problem. OTOH, I think we should support this  
by default if the system supports it, and not only for folks who  
compile their VM themselves.
