can't find new custom module (shared library object file)

Thanks for your continued help. I went ahead and created a 3 - 4 line 
program to call dlopen for the shared library. The program worked. Then 
I looked at the FR source and modified my test pgm to use the same flags 
in the dlopen call that FR uses... and voila! low and behold it revealed 
a undefined symbol (from libcurl). Got to call dlerror() to see this.

Our library uses libcurl but I forgot to include it (-lcurl) in my 
Makefile for rlm_billmax.c

Rebuilding package now so not sure but I believe I have this resolved. 
Thanks again for your help.
