IIRC the libdl dynamic loader is specific to the ELF binary format,
which DSLinux does not support. DSLinux uses FLAT binaries,
which are not paged (since we have no MMU) and relocated at runtime.

I guess you may have to hack your application so it includes
the dynamic libraries statically instead.
