Have been for some time.

There is already a dynload_os2.c for the VACPP port, which implements a
module loader via direct OS/2 API calls.
Because the EMX stuff that I picked up (a 1.5.2 port by Andrew Zobolotny)
used an emulation of dlopen() (PC/os2emx/dlfcn.c) I carried that over.
I hadn't considered the changes to dynload_shlib.c that significant.
however I'll look into whether I can adapt the EMX port to use the VACPP
module loader in dynload_os2.c.
