    Ok, thanks for the information. Typing MH_* into Google
    brought up a couple of email exchanges:

         the former involves explicit (compiled-in) path

         not. I'm not sure whether the distinction is truly
         useful or not, but I can see why it's in place.

    As Apache does not need versioning and path references for
    the DSOs, we should be fine with MH_BUNDLEs. And that is what
    GNU libtool currently builds.

    Fred has some private changes to libtool for making real
    dynamic libraries. I think GNU libtool should build MH_DYLIB
    by default, and switch to MH_BUNDLEs when '-module' is
