This means that only the suffix may change. And currently PARI only
support dynamic linking of modules with libdl , WIN32 and WINCE, which
all support long file names.

The three possible extension are :

.so  for un*x-like system
.o   for SUNOS when someone forget the dummy linking 
ld -shared math.o -o   (it happen to me:)  
.dll for W*ndows

So the thing to do is to make "install" retry with .so or .dll.
