That seems like a potential workaround, but it seems to me like the
right fix is to make libltdl aware of OS X brain dead behavior, and
allow callbacks into the server core from dlopen'ed modules.  I don't
immediately know how big a project that is, but it seems intuitively
better than working around a linker problem with crazy code hacks.

Not that I see a better way at the moment, so mark this up as unhelpful.
