Oops!! I totally forgot, that libzsh.so is not installed when I do
make install :-( 

This opens up two questions:

  1. libzsh.so *must* be installed. I think, it was on Zoltan's to do
     list ...

  2. There must be a way for several dynamic ZSH versions to coexist. It 
     can be done in (at least) two ways:

     - easy and portable :)
         just build (and link with) libzsh.x.y.z.so instead of libzsh.so
         It will run on every system which supports shared libraries

     - at least on SVR4 is possible to give shared library a name (-h 
       option). If library libfoo.so was built with -h libfoo.so.x.y.z, 
       then after initial linking with -lfoo run time loader will look
       for libfoo.so.x.y.z. I think, it works this way on Linux as well. 

Zefram, I think you were the author of most dynamic hacks. What do you

BTW this version defaults to -O -g compiler options and -s linker option.
I would expect developer version to not be stripped, and -O -g doesn't
work with most compilers.
