Arrg, why does flameeyes keep pushing these OS-specific hacks? If it
were windows brain damage someone were trying to work around we would
just tell them to piss off, but since it's GNU brain damage everyone
keeps entertaining his broken solutions... IMO we should treat all
brain damage the same. If shared libs are this broken then *gasp*
don't use shared libs!
