Ok, a little update, there is no dlopen in uCLibc because uCLibc is
not being configured with support for shared objects (which dlopen,
opens.)  And there is no support for that because it is being compiled
without PIC support.

After enabling PIC Support I had to modify uCLibc as it has some
naughty ldso code that declares a few statics as externs.

Now, I'm on to fixing errors in the user applications as some do not
compile nicely when not being done statically.
