Its all good, I'm using your 2.3 nightly builds since it appears  
someone did something to useDynLib. I'm sort of hoping I can use it  
to resolve symbols more easily.... I need to try libffi again to see  
if I can get the objc/ffi stuff working on x86, the Darwin/x86 code  
wasn't working last time I checked.
