Well, one thing worth noting is that embedded modules have a dependency on the
GNU linker.  On my mac, for example, GNU ld was not used, so embedded modules
won't work.  However, if you got it to build, you probably are using GNU ld ...

Also, I don't think dlopen() gets used with embedded modules.  Instead, each
embedded module uses an __attribute__ ((constructor)) function to register its
module description struct to the loader.
