No, I was thinking that there may be systems which require 'ldconfig' (or equivalent) in order to "bless" the file as being safe to load. I recall strange problems in the past but my memory has faded now as to which OSs were involved or what the exact scenario was.

  Man pages are pretty useless in a situation like this.
That was a start of doing some research.

Definitely a good start. Installing the modules faster would surely be a blessing. My package has about 100 of them.
