I'm waiting for an update on the author of the original patch.
Hopefully, it will apply cleanly.  If not, I'll get in touch with
you.   Thanks for the offer :-)

Huh?  Ever read about the libtool -dlopen flag?  It even goes to the
length of generating symbol tables and linking the libraries together
with the binary on platforms that don't support dynamic linking.
Mostly like --with-staticlib does on Kaffe, except that more portably.
