I have a problem with my dynamically loaded code in R not finding pow_ii, which
for some time I thought was because library f2c is not on my Sparcstation.
However, I have now been experiencing the same problem in Linux, with all the
proper libraries in place.

My incomplete understanding of elf and shared libraries does not help, but when
compiling a complete program I usually muddle through. However, in the case of
dynamically loading code into R, I am not sure whether it is my dse.so or R
which should have the knowledge of where to find /usr/lib/libf2c.so*. I haven't
had much success trying to configure so that that information is in dse.so. None
of the usual things seem to help, so I suspect R itself needs to be able to find
the library. If someone can explain this I would very much appreciate it.
