Sorry, hit the wrong button again:-(
For those who missed the message, we are discussing the Yacas plugin 
interface which apparently needs libltdl.

Elsewhere, it does say that you need to write a platform dependent 
instantiation of an abstract DLL class. Something to be investigated 
in future once GCC 4 is available, I guess. But I would be interested 
to know if anyone is aware of other packages with a similar 
requirement. Much of Yacas is borrowed from Lisp and some from Python.
