the libdl functions dlopen, dlclose, and dlsys. I received several
correct responses.

Did you rebuild shared libraries recently? ;-)

Add an '-ldl' to /usr/lib/shlib.etc/Makefile, and rebuild 'em. We had
the same problem.

Change both occurrences of

        ld -assert pure-text `${OBJSORT} lorder-sparc tmp`


        ld -assert pure-text `${OBJSORT} lorder-sparc tmp` -ldl

That fixed the problem. Thanks to everyone who replied.
