           To provide maximum flexibility Apache now is able to load
           modules under runtime via the DSO mechanism by using the
  -        pragmatic dlopen()/dlsym() system calls. These system calls
  +        pragmatic apr_dso_open()/apr_dso_sym() calls. These calls
           are not available under all operating systems therefore you
  -        cannot use the DSO mechanism on all platforms. And Apache
  -        currently has only limited built-in knowledge on how to
  -        compile shared objects because this is heavily
  -        platform-dependent. The current state is this:
  -
  -        o Out-of-the-box supported platforms are (Not all of these
  -          will work currently.  DSO support is currently available on
  -          most of these platforms however):
  -           - Linux     - SunOS         - UnixWare     - Darwin/Mac OS
  -           - FreeBSD   - Solaris       - AIX          - OpenStep/Mach
  -           - OpenBSD   - IRIX          - SCO          - DYNIX/ptx
  -           - NetBSD    - HPUX          - ReliantUNIX
  -           - BSDI      - Digital Unix  - DGUX
  -
  -        o Entirely unsupported platforms are:
  -           - Ultrix
  +        cannot use the DSO mechanism on all platforms. Apache relies
  +        on autoconf to detect the ability to use DSOs, and libtool to
  +        determine how to build DSOs. If your platform is supported by
  +        libtool, and we can find DSO system calls, then DSOs should
  +        work out-of-the-box. 
   
           If your system is not on these lists but has the dlopen-style
           interface, you either have to provide the appropriate compiler
