It doesn't appear that the +s flag alone lets explicit calls to
shl_load search SHLIB_PATH to find libraries.

typescript-like testcase at http://misers.org/apache/shl_load.txt
(similiar results for ia64 in same dir)

It might also be wise to (instead?)  test for SHL after DLFCN as SHL
is deprecated (swapping of two stanzas in srclib/apr/configure.in):

      Future HP-UX environments may not support these routines and flags or
      may only support a subset of them.  Instead, they will use the SVR4
      dynamic loading API.  Users are encouraged to migrate to the dl*
      family of dynamic linking routines.
