Well I was really not expecting that my patches would allow install()
to works. I think it is rather the use of dlcompat by itself.

Also the informations I found insist that loadable module must
be compiled with 'cc -bundle -flat_namespace -undefined suppress'
instead of -dynamic.

I can more or less easily tweak gp2c-run to build modules 
with these options if it is needed.

There are several issues to be addressed currently:
1) What do -install-path.
2) How can we set a runpath (if it make sense).
3) What is the equivalent of -export-dynamic.
4) How do we detect that dlcompat is available?
