This may indicate a problem of missing/superfluous underscores in 
exported symbols of shared libraries - see the discussion concerning 
OpenBSD port conducted recently (late July; see also 
HAVE_NO_SYMBOL_UNDERSCORE). Each platform has different requirements in 
that respect and "methods" is the first package that loads a dynamic 
library and uses its functions.
