Hmmmm... yes we have to permutate some stuff inside Configure.  Too bad that
we don't use GNU Autoconf. Although I've cleaned Configure up in the past it
still is a horrible mess of script code which too much dependencies. OTOH what
is really not good enough is TestCompile. Hmmm...

Ops, which *dl* replacements? What exactly do you mean, Marc?
What exactly is broken with DSO?

Seems like we have two bugs (the ones above), so IMHO we should delay the
1.3.1 release until we have fixed them _correctly_.  I already looked inside
Configure and permutated some stuff.  But its too sensible to just commit this
and think all is fine.  I expect side-effects at other locations now. So we
have to fix it _correctly_ by taking some time for it.
