Please help me understand what you're proposing. Do you mean
we should integrate entire libdl.so into libdrmaa.so? If so,
how could this be accomplished?

Besides please help me comprehend why is it problematic to link
against libdl.so for dlopen(), while it is ok to link against
libpthread.so due to pthread_create()?
