(1) Dynamic loading doesn't work on all systems.
( I started trying to port it to AIX back before Christmas, and I
haven't had a chance to get back to it yet. )
(2) Makefile+Configure mechanics, etc. - just the labor involved
in changing dynamic loading of most modules to be an option
if dynamic loading IS supported.
