Not sure what you are looking for here, but what we do in httpd is that all
module DSOs are installed as .so regardless of the platform and its
specific/preferred extension. And, the apr_dso_load will correctly call
the native function to load that dynamic library.

But, I'm not at all sure what this RA run-time loading 'feature' is doing
in Subversion - I've never understood it. libsvn_ra_dav and libsvn_ra_svn,
libsvn_ra_local are already specified on the link line, so the compiled
binaries are going to already pull those libraries in (and fail if they
aren't there). -- justin
