On Mac OS X (trying it on 10.5.8 PPC G4), guile-1.8.7 cannot open
dynamic library files with name extensions .dylib, but only if they
are renamed using .so instead. On the Bug-Guile list they say it
just calls libltdl, in the libtool package. I have installed latest
of both, but the problem persists:

libtool should produce modules named *.so on Darwin if you pass the
-module flag at link time.  Typically, -avoid-version is used for
modules as well.

But dlopen() on Mac OS X can only open files in the native format, which isn't ELF, and they are typically named with the .dylib file name extension. If it finds a .so file on ELF format, all it does is reporting it cannot be opened.
