Please commit it: it looks OK, and we can always fix problems later; also, it
will be much easier to track down exactly what's going on.

Btw, in the dlcompat distro, there is a very short dlcn_simple.c file (~150
lines of [GPL-ed] C code) providing a complete dlopen()/dlsym()/dlerror()
interface on Darwin.

It looks simpler to just include it in src/systems/darwin, just like Ilya did
for OS/2, than to have elaborate Configure logic to try and detect this
non-standard package ( and document it; most users will simply not know this
may be needed, or how to set it up. )
