I mean, that should also be seen on other platforms than darwin, right?
Or am I mistaken here? (I wouldn't count myself to know large parts of
libtool indepth, well, then again, who still does ;-) ...)

Well, on pretty much every other platform nowadays, there's little (no?) difference on-disk between a module and a regular shared library... elf doesn't care. If you're dlopening it, it'll get found regardless. In darwin that's not the case... dlopen is emulated in the first place, but the dynamic loader really acts nothing like dl on most other platforms.

It may be that no one ran into this before because their platform wasn't as strange as darwin. =)
